Review:

The red flower spikes start out small but just keep growing larger and more dense than the photo. The seeds keep for 5 years. They tolerate dry soil and will bounce back from limp leaves. They also grow in wet conditions. They were planted in pond mud and placed in furrows to grow. In partial sun the heads have become heavy enough that the plant needs support. In full sun health food store amaranth has grown to 8 feet. Love Lies has grown to 7 feet. A very adaptable plant will even seed in just several inches of soil. They can be dried for craft and decoration. Good high protein source of food.
