Chenopodium glaucum

Chenopodium glaucum

Common name oakleaf goosefoot
Family chenopodiaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers greenish (summer)
Size 6-12"

A close relative of lamb's quarters: along with pigweed, the annual weeds have the barnyard fairly well covered! I've had this little weed growing in the garden as a summer annual for as long as I can remember. It's not much of a nuisance, is easily pulled up, and until recently I never bothered to learn its name. I'm glad I did – it somehow makes the plant more interesting!

This is a weed in our garden
