Review:

In our desert town, we look for plants that thrive. All of the Amaranth varieties we've tried never disappoint. Our purple Love Lies Bleeding has grown over 7-feet tall. Our Globosa (Globe Amaranth) flowers profusely. The yellow Joseph's Coat is fantastic. But the Molten Fire really draws attention. Growing up to 5-feet tall, its oxblood and purple colors add a unique visual interest we've never had in our yard before. We prepare the soil before we bring in our mulch for the year, by tilling under last year's mulch, and using it as this year's compost. Then, we sprinkle seeds on the surface, lightly press it in, soak it, and put a clear plastic cup over it, with a 1/4-inch diameter hole drilled into the top. This little terrarium keeps the seeds moist and warm, and almost all of them sprout. We thin it down to the two strongest growers, and then to one when they're bigger. I just wish the colors lasted most of the Summer, not just the end of Summer into Fall. It's one of our favorites.

Review:

Bought a packet in 010' and grew 3 plants indoors all winter. Very little seed production.....but a very beautiful and enlivening plant to grow, as the color is so striking it draws attention immediatly. Plant only gets about 10 inches tall....excellent for edible borders. I have planted way more than I can use for summer, and love giving these away as houseplants. The leaves are tasty! Easy to grow, A great amaranth to learn with. Highly recommended.
