Spergula morisonii is a species of flowering plant belonging to the family Caryophyllaceae.
The spring spark grows as an annual herbaceous plant and reaches heights of 3 to 50 centimeters. The whole plant is pretty bare. The opposite leaves, which appear to be tufted with short shoots, are linear-subleaf and have no longitudinal furrow on the underside.
The flowering period extends from April to June. The hermaphroditic flowers are radially symmetrical and five-fold with a double flower envelope. There are five sepals. The five white petals are ovoid, bluntly rounded, cover each other or touch each other and usually shorter than the sepals. There are ten, more rarely six to eight stamens.

How to get rid of:
Pull shortly after rain or after watering the area with a hose or sprinkler to loosen the soil and make the job easier. Allow the soil to drain until it is moist but not muddy so that it easily falls off the roots. This keeps the tools and gloves clean too.
