Some similarities to: Squinancywort, in that both have square stems, both have four pink petals and both belong to the Bedstraw Family. Squinancywort looks more like a sprawling bedstraw.

Not to be confused with: Wild Madder (Rubia peregrina) nor to Madder(Rubia tinctoria) which although are in the same family, are in a differing Gebus.
