Gravelly shores, dumps, roadsides, railroad tracks, river banks, and other naturally or artificially disturbed ground. Probably adventive in Michigan where first collected in Ingham Co. in 1879.
Most, if not all, of our collections are var. glaucum, with rather obscure rounded or obtuse teeth on the leaves; a few scattered collections have more distinctly, sharply acute teeth and leaf tips and may be var. salinum (Standl.) B. Boivin. Chenopodium glaucum is often confused with others if one does not remember the distinctive combination of leaves (which tend to be relatively small) farinose beneath but perianth not farinose.
