Spiny amaranth and spiny pigweed are the same plant. I hadnt heard it called spiny pigweed but it is!
it deserves the name Pigweed in my garden, it's like wild pigs and you can't get rid of it. You should see the carpet of it in the spring after the ground has been tilled and millions of seeds are turned up....

If you can find a spine on the stems near a node then I would call that spiny amaranth. If no spines, then redroot pigweed. Again, just my guess.


You would be correct!

if its pigweed, you need to dig up plant and haul it away, the pigweed in west tennessee is resistant to roundup and is taking over some areas, approximately 200,000 seed per mature plant
Only have one small area of it in one plot,Ill spray some gly on it,see what happens


we have been able to kill some of it in the fall with gly, at the same time its now a mature plant, I wonder what the seeds will do

the seeds will come up in the thousands next spring, I guarantee it, unless you use a lot of pre-emergent or something. If the ground is tilled it's even worse because every time you till it will turn up new seeds.

My food plots, especially the better soil ones, are taken over every summer by Perilla Mint, also known as Beefsteak Weed:
