Dysphania botrys R. W. Smith

Chenopodium botrys of Michigan Flora

A Eurasian native, found in sand and cinders along roads and railroads, in gravel pits, and on other dry disturbed sites. First collected 1837 in Kalamazoo Co. and 1838 in Washtenaw Co., by the First Survey.

The very early collections are suggestive that it may have been cultivated as an aromatic herb.
