Plant in Düsseldorf (1 Viewer)


Active member
I saw this plant on 03-07-2022 on the Rhine foreland in Düsseldorf, an area that can be flooded when the water is high.. There is an interesting mix of plants at this location, most of which I could ID but not this one. Does anybody know what it is, please?

The serration of the leaves does not fit Gypsywort.
Such a pebble beach is a typical location for Dysphania ambrosioides (Mexican-tea, Mexikanischer Drüsengänsefuß), which is common along the Rhine – I guess that is what you photographed.
Gypsywort is a plant that I know well. I'm pleased that this plant is D. ambrosioides because it is the first time I have recorded it. I'll certainly be looking at it again this year. Thanks for the assistance.
