Elephant Head Amaranth

This heirloom was brought to the USA from Germany in the 1880’s and so named because the huge flower heads often take on the appearance of an elephant’s trunk. The 3- to 5-foot plants produce flowers that are deep reddish-purple in color. A striking variety that is among the most unique we sell.

What are the pros? Grew from seed in abundance!

What are the cons? nothing to add here.

Review:

I grew the elephant head from seed, in Ireland this year, both in the poly tunnel and also outside. I use the young leaves in green juices. The flowers are beautiful in the garden - so easy to grow. It's good to sow different seeds!

Planted my first plant that was about 8 inches tall in the early summer of 2014...every year they come back, and every year they get bigger ...this summer the flower was about 2 feet long and 12" around....others were close in size....such an eye catching plant..love it...

What are the pros? unique, colorful

What are the cons? short plant

Review:

Elephant Head amaranth is one of the coolest looking plants, its seed head is bulky and a bit comical (its characteristic shape does look like a big nose or a finger) and seems to bring a fun character to the space it's in.. self seeds but not as invasive as some other amaranths we have tried.

What are the pros? Huge blooms until snowfall

What are the cons? Blooms can topple the plant

Review:

My garden was gifted my first plant by the birds. I saved the dried bloom and planted seeds in several locations the next year. I too have a range of shapes in the bloom head from that single plant. Each year I replant, the blooms get bigger and more varied.
