May I ask everybody present here to please clear me a confusion that if the attached picture of the red angiosperm with white inflorescence is the plant Gomphrena celosioides (Amaranthaceae) or not?

Waiting for your kind response,


It is not. Though belongs to the Family Amaranthaceae it is more closer to Alternanthera.


Sir, Can it be Alternanthera brasiliana (L.) Kuntze ?????


Please check on the page-

….this is alternanthera braziliana of family amaranthaceae


Thank you Sir for your kind information. A. brasiliana and A. dentata are synonymous.
