A Eurasian weed, now a frequent plant of roadsides, fields, railroads, and other disturbed, usually sandy ground. Evidently in Michigan only since about 1889, when collected in Ionia Co. Some specimens are difficult to place; those lacking both basal parts and mature fruits can usually not be safely identified.
