please identify the plant in picture from Warsaw. Is it some Alternanthera sp.
Yes ‘Red Alternanthera’. Most probably Alternanthera ficoidea.
Iresine herbstii – a warm temperate plant in Amaranthaceae, originally from South America, I think.
Noted the correct ID and thanks for communicating the same to me. Sorry … for my misidentification. In fact, I am very familiar with this plant (Iresine species) and had grown this in my institute’s garden a decade ago dentified and explained to many about the special features of this plant. While checking your photograph I just did the ID in such a hurry that it did not occur to me that I had this plant in my garden and all my attention was only on red Alternathera. This is a lesson for non-professional taxonomists like me to be patient while checking the characters. Patient pays and hurry harms.
Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae Week: RVS-10: Iresine herbstii?: Please confirm if this is Iresine herbstii. Found growing in a garden near Tirunelveli, TN.
I feel this is not Iresine herbstii.
This is Purple Amaranthus or Red Amaranthus.
I have posted a picture of Iresine herbstii from Munnar earlier.
Will repost under family week.
Experts kindly correct me if I am wrong, since I’m not an expert in Botany.
look at the inflorescence…
Thanks for correcting me. It was just a guess.
Seems to be Iresine herbstii only.
Probably I had got confused earlier.
