arrasa con todo, Gomphrena serrata

Arrasa con todo, or prostrate globe amaranth if you prefer English, or amor de soltero. Arassa con todo means erase it all.
Not sure if that is from its sometimes effect of crowding out others, or the consequent desire to get rid of it. Amor de soltero means only love, an interesting contrast. The leaves are edible. This American has spread to Pacific islands and India, where it is invasive. Here, it occurs in FL, GA, HI, LA, MD, TX, and VA. Polk Co FL, 10/20/15. Amaranth family, Amaranthaceae.
