Wild Plant For ID : Amaranthaceae : 20FEB15 : AK-23 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)

A wild plant seen in a farm in Muscat on 30/1/2015.

Seems to be from the Amaranthaceae family.


Thanks for forwarding my earlier post.
This could be Amaranthus graecizans as suggested by Dr Annette Patzelt of Oman Botanic Gardens.

Actually, I had sent her two images, so not sure which one she has confirmed.
