Carpetweed is a summer annual with smooth prostrate branching stems forming circular mats. The leaves are light green in color, lanceolate in shape, being widest in the middle of the leaf and narrow at the tip and base. The leaves form in whorls containing 3 - 8 leaves. The flowers are white, contain five petals, and form clusters of two to five flowers. The clusters of flowers are formed in leaf axils. Carpetweed spreads by seed. Carpetweed is found throughout most the North America.
