Product Overview

Amaranthus hypochondriacus

Elegant burgundy plumes with striking maroon leaves add rich color to the back of a border. Excellent cut flower fresh or dried.

These majestic plants make a lovely backdrop in the flower garden and a bold statement in flower arrangements. A major crop of the Aztecs, beige seeds follow the dramatic, burgundy plumes in about 105 days; very high in protein and other nutrients. Cook like rice for a side dish or pop like popcorn! Leave the seeds on and watch the birds flock to your yard. Very young leaves are delectable for salads and steaming.

Sowing Inside

4 to 6 weeks before your average last frost date.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, when soil temperature is 65°–75°F.
