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.
