Amaranthus hypochondriacus. Grow this is an ancient Aztec grain like quinoa, and is great for nutritious, gluten-free grains that mature at the end of summer. Plants grow 1.5-2m (5-6') tall, with amazing plumes of attractive burgundy flowers that are followed by white seeds.
Burgundy Organic amaranth seeds are a striking show stopper in any garden! Perfect addition for flower arrangements.
The immature leaves are also edible, and have a distinctive, nutty flavour great for eating raw in salad mixes or briefly steamed.
Amaranth can grow well in raised beds, and handles hot weather favourably. The deep red foliage and the remarkable flower clusters absolutely make this plant stand out in the garden setting.
