Sir,

This is a wild stout herb in a dead canal which is also used as a dumping ground in places. The canal remains waterlogged during the monsoon months.
This plant is more robust than the Amaranthus spinosus L., but without spines and i think less hardy.

Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : erect herb, height between 4.5 ft.
Date : 30/1/13
Place : Hooghly

Thank you,

Regards,

surajit

Some earlier relevant feedback:      

 Can be Amaranthus viridis L.

"Very recently i posted this plant and Nidhan Sir suggested that it was likely to be Amaranthus viridis L.
  • But, it is too tall & robust to be an Amaranthus viridis L.
  • According to the "Bengal Plants" Amaranthus viridis L. is a slender annual.
  • "Flora of British India" describes :- Amaranthus viridis L. = stem 1-2 ft.; rarely decumbent below; leaves 1-2 in., variable in breath......
  • "Flora Indica" describes :- A. viridis Willd. iv. 388 = ascending, ramous, from one to two feet high......
  • FoP and FoC too describe that A. viridis L. is a smaller herb
Amaranthus pages in the "Bengal Plants" :-
I think this is some other species of Amaranthus, not A. viridis.
Thank you,
Regards,
surajit"

Thank you Promila Ji.


There is one Amaranthus, A. polygamus, which was known as CHAULAL  in "An English Index to The Plants of India".

The Plant List lists three, maybe more, A. polygamus -
