Habit Herb
Distribution New World tropics and subtropics and an adventive weed in the Old World. A common weed throughout the Republic, particularly where man's activities have left disturbed ground. This taxon is very variable in other parts of its range but none of the extreme forms which may prove worthy of recognition seem to occur in Panama.
