Also known as firebush, is a weed that produces large amounts of pollen which may induce hayfever, asthma, and conjunctivitis in sensitised patients. Kochia is native to southern and eastern Russia, Europe, and Asia, and has nautralised across the northern Unites States. Kochia becomes a tumbleweed when mature.

Kochia is native to southern and eastern Russia, Europe and Asia. It is now naturalised across the northern half of the United States and spreading south-westwards. It is found in many other areas of the world. Kochia is a major source of pollen.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis are common following exposure to pollen from Kochia; however, few specific studies have been reported to date. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
