Alternanthera pungens: Alternanthera pungens
Khaki weeds
At Phansad WLS , Maharashtra

This I think is not A. pungens rather A. ficoides, which shows a lot of variability. A. pungens is a prostrate plant, often forming patches characterised by nearly rounded leaves narrowed towards base and the flowers have perianth with sharp spiny tips. I am uploading it separately


Alternanthera sessilis for sure.

Seen growing wild in a bungalow garden


It looks like A. sessilis to me.


Yes it resemble to A.sessilis. This species has high variability in leaves. It may have green or coppery leaves, it may have elliptic leaves or almost linear leaves. I have seen all these variations within Pantnagar itself. However; reproductive parts (flowers) need to be checked for confirmation.

help with plant identification : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (6)
I am hoping someone can help me identify the attached plant that I found in farmers fields in Bihar.
I thought it may be in the polygonaceae family, but I do not see a distinct ochria.  
It has prostrate growth, and a clustered flower. I looked through all of the white and pink flower pictures on the flowers of india website, but could not figure it out


Alternanthera sp. (Amaranthaceae).


Yes, Alternanthera sessilis. A leaf vegetable, believed to be beneficial to eyes!
