SKU: AMAR-OR Category: Tags: ,


(Amaranthus hypochondriacus) A showy Amaranth native to Guatemala. Not only is the inflorescence orange, but also the stems and leaf veins. Put it in your front yard flower bed; no need to relegate such a handsome plant to the back vegetable garden. Seed is edible. Birds like it too so either bag the heads to protect them, or let your avian friends have them.

Planting suggestions: Direct sow in late spring. Thin to at least one foot apart for tall plants. Regular garden soil is sufficient. Full sun and regular watering.

At least 50 seeds per packet.
