The mystery plant for December is an annual with white flowers and whorled leaves. The leaves are 10-15 mm long and 2-5mm wide. The leaves form mats lie flat on the ground.  The white flowers are on pedicels 5-10 mm long. Several flowers are produced from each leaf axil. The anthers are long and yellow in color. The seeds are formed inside a brown capsule which is 2-3mm long and contains many seeds. This plant is not particular as to where it grows. It can be found in cracks of sidewalks, drawn-down river edges and dunes.  It blooms from June through October.
