Indeling

Asteraceae [familie]
Ambrosia [genus] (4/3)

Common ragweed, originating from the southeast of the United States, is known from the Netherlands since 1875. Most plants are found in gardens and stem from bird food. Only on a few localities, like along the River Rhine east of Nijmegen, long lasting populations occur. The plants produce large amounts of pollen, causing hay fever.
