Annual flowering plant can grow 2-3 feet in height and produces long lasting 18" beautiful red flower tassles. Tolerates both humid and arid conditions. Many parts of the plant, including leaves and seeds, are edible.
|How To Grow||Amaranthus thrives in dry soil. Direct sow seed 6 mm (1/4") deep outdoors in a sunny site after danger of frost has passed. For an early start, seed may be started indoors in early April. Seed germinates at 20 C (70 F) in 10-14 days. After that, grow on at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting to a sunny site. Take special care to ensure roots do not become crowded when growing plants for seed indoors as this slows plant development. Space plants 45-60 cm (18-24") apart in the garden.|
