Ambrosia chamissonia (Silver beachweed)

In California this species often has a dense coating of fine silvery-white hair. Further north, it may lack much of the hairy coating giving it more of a gray-green appearance. Due to this variation, some scientists have assigned the less hairy plant the subspecies name A. chamissonis bipinnatisecta.
