Tumbling Pigweed Amaranthus retroflexus is a common weed in North
America that can grow to a height of two metres. Separate male and female
flowers are clustered at the top of the stem. It is one of the plants that
are known as Tumbleweeds because when it is dying down the stem breaks and
the whole plant is bowled along by the wind. This is an efficient way of
scattering the seeds.
