Parietaria floridana

Parietaria floridana
Small greenish flowers at the stem, mostly hidden by the leaves
Florida pellitory
Common name Florida pellitory
Family urticaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers greenish
Light sun-part shade

Annual weed in the nettle family, native to the southeastern corner of the U.S. It grows rapidly from seed, sometimes upright, sometimes sprawling, and produces inconspicuous greenish-white flowers from January to May, whose pollen is reportedly strongly allergenic. Not a bad weed in our Texas garden – so far at least.
