Goatweed is an annual, erect, branching herb, 0.5-1 m high (Photo 2). Stems are soft becoming woody with age. Leaves, oval, but broader at the base, up to 7.5 cm long (Photo 3). Both young stems and leaves are covered with fine white hairs. When crushed the leaves have the smell of a male goat, hence the name. Plants have 4-18 flowerheads in a branched flat-topped cluster at the top of the stems or less commonly from branches off the main stem (Photos 4&5). Within each flowerhead, there are 30-50 white, light blue or violet flowers (Photos 6&7). The individual flowerheads are surrounded by two to three rows of leaf-like structures (Photo 5). The fruits are small, brown and one-seeded (Photo 8). The plants have shallow fibrous roots.
