A tall, edible plant with intense reddish-purple leaves. The large elegant flower plumes produce an abundant amount of seeds. The seeds are preferred for grain and flour. The leaves are eaten raw in salads or cooked. Its size and color make it a wonderful addition as a backdrop for borders.
Dwarf Amaranth growing up to 16 inches with rich crimson plumes adds ornamental appeal. The long-lasting cut flowers dry a deep red and the green-to-burgundy leaves and shiny black seeds are edible and delicious! Cute little plants that are perfect in smaller gardens or containers.
