Family, Goosefoot. Color, a dull or leaden pink imparted to the plant from the wings, which make a circular border along the back of the calyx after it has grown and inclosed the fruit. Flowers, sessile, single, in axils of awl-shaped, very pointed, small leaves ending in a bristle. Plant rather branched and spreading, 1 to 2 feet high.
One of those plants, homely annuals, which are found everywhere along our seashores.
