I found this plant growing on Max Patch, a pretty bald high in the mountains on the TN / NC border not far from the Smokies. Like the Chickweed flowers to which it is related, the 5 petals are so deeply cut, they appear to have 10 petals. This plant has long, thin leaves and the flowers bloom on tiny, thread-like stems.
Perennial
Where seen: TN / NC border
