Chickweed, so-named because chickens forage on it, is an annual groundcover found in abundance throughout Europe and North America.

Often considered a nuisance weed, this lawn invader is high in several nutrients, including iron, vitamin C and B vitamins. The powdered form of the herb is encapsulated or sprinkled into smoothies and cooked foods.
