Horseweed(Conyza canadensis) is a common edible “weed” that grows throughout the U.S. in all 50 states. Scientifically it may also be cited under the name Erigeron canadensis, and some people call it mares tail too.
The most common edible part of the plant is the young, emerging leaf tips cooked, or dried and used as a spice or tea.
Horseweed is used medicinally to treat chronic intestinal inflammation, and as an antifungal that is active against a large array of pathogenic fungi, including many of those responsible for ringworm.
Horseweed likes to grow in open, sunny fields across the U.S. in dryland region AND humid rainy regions. Hot regions and cold regions. It’s not very picky, and can grow in the cracks of sidewalks, or severely nutrient poor soils. It usually can be found in areas that have had the dirt recently disturbed, such as land cleared for construction.
Identification of horseweed is easy once you learn it, but it can be tricky the first time. There are a handful of other plants that superficially resemble horseweed, and it doesn’t have any super distinct features. However, like all plants, once learned it can safely and reliably be recognized 100% of the time.
The plant is an annual herb, usually only with one solitary unbranched stalk per plant, but it can branch only when damaged.
Horseweed has lanceolate/almost linear leaves with gently and irregularly toothed margins. Hair is variable from location to location. Some will be hairy, but all at least have tiny hairs around the margin(edge) of each leaf. Leaves are tightly packed along the stalk, and have a resinous, spicy smell. If you put this plant in your mouth and chew it up raw, it will be intensely spicy.
Flower inflorescence similar in shape and appearance to wild lettuce(Lactuca spp.). Flowers small and indistinct with short white petals. Aster Family.
