    An identification of the plant in the following photos is kindly requested. It is about 1.6 m high. The inflorescence is a tyrse of spikes made of multiple imbricate flowers. The tepals are subulate, ending with an awn-like mucro. It grows on a water canal bank. It looks like belonging to Amaranthaceae, but extensive search on the web for Amaranthacea species yielded no similar images. This is the first time this species is found in Israel. I would be grateful for any help that can lead to the ID of this weed.

    First thought was Celosia of some kind.
