Maple-leaved Goosefoot is found in forest and forest clearings in most of North America except for parts of the southeastern United States. Its flowers are green and its leaves bright green with large, pointed teeth particularly in the lower half of the leaf. The leafes have some resemblance with...indeed...a maple-leaf.

Comments: This species is sometimes referred to by the scientific name Chenopodium hybridum.
