The tips of these leaves started turning red (see the one in the grass?) and then the seeds turned really bright red! Weird Weed?
SOLVED: Red Weed?
Don't let that go to seed in your garden TamTam. You'll be pulling out tons!
Oooooh Boy is that ever coming out tomorrow - thanks, guys!! :)
Actually I'm not convinced it's either of them...my fault, tho, cuz the picture isn't very good. I'm going to take some more pics tomorrow & post them....hmmmmm!! :)
That Looks Just like...
Mountain Orach(Atriplex hortensis).
It Grows 4'-6' Tall.
Heavy Seeder and as the Season progresses
the Plant will turn the Most Beautiful Fuchsia-Magenta Color.
I have Several Plants of it Growing here now.
It's Totally Green for about 2-3 months,
And then begins a Slow Process of the late color change.
Here in Oregon it happens in late Aug/Early Sept because of our Cooler Summer Climate.
It's Definately NOT any type of Dock.
I'm not so sure it's the Mountain Spinach, either!! The leaves were thinner, very green except for bright red tips, the Atriplex Hortensis had those beautiful purple leaves...didn't find any pics of those going to seed - wow, wonder what I had there (I'm thinking of getting some seeds off the one I threw away, just in case!!)
