(Amaranthus cruentus)You will be delighted by this gorgeous and graceful amaranth! Its warm, golden copper plumes stand upright and approximately 4’ tall. Like all amaranths, it is highly productive with branching stems allowing for multiple cuttings from one plant. Lasts very well (minus foliage) in a vase and almost forever in the garden! Birds love it as the Fall approaches and the seed fills out. Prized as well for its edible seed and young leaves, amaranth has been grown for over 8,000 years and was a staple food of the Aztecs. Very high in many nutrients. Buff colored seed.
