Botany picture #120: Asperula conferta
Sometimes I am surprised that a plant that I first thought to be obviously a weed turns out to be native. This is an example: Asperula conferta (Rubiaceae), New South Wales, 2013. Looks just like the Galium and Asperula in Europe, so I wrongly assumed it had been introduced from there.
