I cannot figure out what plant or weed this is! I found it randomly growing alone in the corner of a plant nursery in Malibu, CA. It looks like a cross between a nettle or lambs quarters? Anyone have any ideas?!

    With no flowers to help narrow down its genus. I ‘m speculating this looks like either a species in the Chenopodiastrum genus, perhaps Chenopodiastrum murale syn. Chenopodium murale (nettle-leaved Goosefoot) or California Goosefoot aka Indian lettuces (Blitum californicum syn. Chenopodium californicum)? Both are in the Amaranthanceae family, same as lambs quarters. Check it out and see if you have a match. Link below is for C. murale. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
