This tumbleweed amaranth (Amaranthus albus) has a striking red fall coloration. The straw-colored plant behind the tumbleweed is fall panicum (Panicum dichotomiflorum). In Allen County, east of Fort Wayne, along Doyle Road. This land is at the west end of what was once known as the Great Black Swamp, the bed of the ancient Lake Maumee.
