Notes:

Ok, so this is my second post re: this plant. I pulled up a different plant that other have correclty identified as purslane. i thought this was the same plant but it looks different. Any idea what plant(weed)this is? It is taking over my backyard and I want to eradicate it. I am looking online but closet thing I can find is pokeweed. DonÕt think that is it though. This grows low to ground in large spiral-like bunches. Grows large but not really tall. When I cut them they were about 2 feet tall.

    Why is that the only plant in your backyard? Are you trying to plant something else but it won’t grow because of these weeds?

    The bloom stalk in the last picture is the giveaway. It looks like pigweed or Amaranth, probably the prostate variety since you say it’s growing low to the ground. http://www.ppws.vt.edu/scott/weed_id/amabl.htm
