Asperula cynanchica - Squinancywort

It was great to see my first Squinancywort of the year and more so to see something I have never seen before.  Whenever I have seen this species over the years it tends to be matt forming and spread out to the ground.  But today this plant you can see in the photo was actually vertical to about 3" high. Another first!
