Chenopodium oahuense, 'aheahea Hawaiian endemic, the woody stem and tree-like habit that is unusual for the family. The flowers are tiny and greenish, and have a mealy, glandular surface.

I've found a poem about ─heahea or Ĺ─weoweo:
"...Multi-Climate Shrub
'─heahea
Endemic
Shrub found in many different climates
Grows to about the height of an average teenager
Wood used for shark hooks
Leaves cooked and eaten like spinach
Who lives on the white capped summit of Mauna Kea
Scattered on the lowlands of the main islands
Isolated on the far northwest islands of Lisianski and Laysan.
Goosefoot
Chenopodium Oahuense.." (Source: Kamehameha Middle School, Honolulu)
