Help needed to identify plant please!

Post by Jools41 » Tue Jan 25, 2011 10:00 am

Hi,

I have been trying to identify the plant in the photo with the red,fluffy spiked flowers...can anyone help please?
The photo was taken in the UK at the end of August/beginning of September.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looks to be some variety of Amaranthus. Hope this helps. :)

Yes i agree with walela 12 that plant could be the member of familiy : Amaranthaceae, about the species, i am not sure, may be Cellocia spp

When I first looked I thought Chenopodium quinoa? Quite long flower spikes aren't they! http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/quinoa2.jpg
