  The leaf tips of purple amaranth are all deeply notched (Figs. 1 and 2). This species is also highly branched unlike the other pigweeds mentioned, which typically have one central stem (Fig. 3). Figure 2. Purple amaranth (right) has deep notches compared to other common pigweed species like Powell amaranth (left). Photo: Erin Hill, MSU. Figure 3. Identifying the Enemy; September 7, Accurate identification of Amaranthus (pigweed) species can be very difficult, especially during early vegetative development because many of these species exhibit similar morphological characteristics (i.e., many look very similar). So if a pigweed plant has a red root, this does not always identify the plant as redroot pigweed!
