Species: Chenopodium spp.
Seedling Identification: Cotyledons and first true leaves sparkle with a coating that looks like tiny water droplets. Stems are purple and often leaves also are tinged with purple. C. album (common lambsquarters; exotic) and C. desiccatum (arid land goosefoot; native) were both found in the study plots, and the seedlings look very similar.
