Cleavers is a common annual weed found in gardens. The leaves, stems and fruit 'stick' to clothing.
Cleavers (aka sticky willow, bedstraw, goosegrass, robin-run-the-hedge and others) is an annual weed that clings strongly to clothing as if it is sticky. The leaves, stems and fruits are actually covered with tiny hooks which help them "stick" to fibres.
It is a climbing and crawling weed with long weak stems. It uses the hooks to climb up over surrounding plants and structures such as fences. The fruits are spread by clinging to animals and then falling off far from the parent plants.
