R. W. Smith
S. kali of Michigan Flora.
A Eurasian native, found on railroads, roadsides, dunes, and other sandy or cindery places. It was probably introduced independently at more than one point in the state, for it first appeared in Detroit (Wayne Co.) in 1891; then in Charlevoix, Kent, and Tuscola Cos. in 1894; and then in Muskegon and St. Clair Cos. in 1895. It is now frequent throughout the state.
The stems and branches are narrowly striped, usually in pink or reddish.
