POTD: Field Chickweed

Field Chickweed
Bozeman, Montana

It’s got weed in it’s name and it’s in our Weeds of the West book, but it’s also in two of our wildflower books. So which is it, a weed or a wildflower? Maybe they’re not mutually exclusive categories. I guess I’m going with the wildflower book which says “Many chickweeds are troublesome weeds of field and garden and have small unattractive flowers. The field chickweed, however, is neither weedy nor unattractive.”
