Sweet-Scented Bedstraw Leaves
Gallium triflorum

I initially took this picture because it showed the flowers growing on a stem out from the main stem. I figured that might help in identification but in the end what helped was forward pointing bristles I could see along the leaf margins.

Location: Indian River Valley, Sitka, Alaska
