Chenopodium bonus-henricus
(Map updated: March 2008)
 

With its large triangular leaves, this is the easiest of the goosefoots to recognise, and also the only perennial member of the Chenopodium genus in Ireland. It is, however, rare; found usually near houses or farms on waste or disturbed ground. It is probably not native, but an old introduction.

All names: Chenopodium bonus-henricus L.
