This flower or weed has been growing in my flower garden. At first I thought they were my dasies. As they got more mature, I thought someone had throw marijuana but when I reserched the mj, I found the leaves were different. The plants are between 12 and 16 inches tall, the leaves are thin and toward the center of the leaves they turn whiteish and the color underneath is the same as the outer leave. The stem has these leaves all up the stem and the stem is kinda purpleish near the ground. It has tiny white flowers and what I thought were buds are actually seed buds. I need to know asap because if its a weed, I want to pull them and plant new dasiey seeds. I was told it might be lambs quarters but I don’t think they are.
