Thanks for showing this plant new to many of us.
Will you please tell the details about the plant as per posting guidelines. The flower may be 0.5 cm like Alternanthera or may be 5cm in size.

Is it (G. celosioides) different from G. serrata? GRIN lists them separate. FoI treats as synonyms. JSTOR doesn't include the latter as syn under the former.
I am confused, could anyone throw some light pl?
