Capsella bursa-pastoris
Family : Brassicaceae mustard family.
Native of eastern Europe and Asia minor, known by its common name shepherd's-purse because of its triangular, purse-like pods, is a small (up to 0.5m) annual and ruderal species. It is naturalised in many places and grows as a weed esp in colder climates.
