tanay ji

in kolar district it grows in soil that is like rubble - no soil at
all, and yet it grows.
i think it is a fantastic plant.
i grow it in my garden which is totally in the shade and it goes for
days without water.
but having said all this i still do not know the botanical name
i feel i should stop writing for a few days.
tanay ji - thanks for this group and for your knowledge.

I think it is Amaranthus cruentus rather than A. gangeticus.
Please refer to following links.

A.gangeticus is an annual flowering plant with deep purple flowers
