Plant Identification

Asked June 6, 2018, 2:12 PM EDT

Hello, A guest took a photo of this plant from the Pine Haven Recreation Center in Midland County and I wonder if someone from the Midland County Extension office might be able to identify it. I have not been able to find it in any of the books here in this library. Thank you for any help you can offer.

A picture or pictures never came through with your comments. Can please help by supplying the pics

Hello Hoping you are able to see the picture now. Thanks.

This looks like some type of amaranth. There are a lot of different types so it's difficult to begin to narrow it down without an image of the whole plant. You may want to try to do an online search to see if any of the images match the plant you saw. If you happen to have a photo of the full plant, you can also send it to us and we can try to narrow it down for you.
