Greater Stitchwort white blossoms

Greater Stitchwort white blossoms

Spotted near a hedge on a walk from Maresfield to Fairwarp. It looks like they have ten petals but hey actually have five that are split almost till the bottom.These plant are sometimes called “poppers” because during dispersal their seed capsules explode with a loud pop.
