Amaranth has been grown for 8,000 years as a nutritious seed grain and was a primary food-source of the Aztec people. These 6ft. plants have a regal burgundy plume and the young leaves are delicious in salad or steamed. This drought tolerant variety can be grown as a hedge or in a floral cutting garden. In late summer, amaranth attracts lots of birds!
