SALTMARSH GOOSEFOOT Chenopodium chenopodioides (Height to 30cm) recalls Red Goosefoot but the mature leaves are always red below and indeed the whole plant is often red-tinged. The reddish green flowers are borne in clusters (Jul-Sep) and the plant grows on drying mud in saltmarshes, with north Kent being the species’ stronghold in our region.
