Goosefoot Overview

Chenopodium is a genus containing around 120 annual and perennial herbaceous species commonly called Goosefoot. They are found worldwide and many species are considered highly invasive weeds. They can produce an abundance of small flowers. Young leaves and stems are often covered in hairs which create a white powdery appearance to the plant.
