What are the pros? rich color, great form

What are the cons? flopped near end of season

Review:

I grew this variety for the first time this year as an ornamental and really liked it. It makes for a great addition to any bouquet or just foliage and form in the garden. The color is very rich (burgundy/maroon) and the form of the mature seed heads is very unique - upward spiral spikes. Mine grew no more than 3 feet tall and has a much smaller spacing than I expected (maybe 2 feet). I'm definitely planting this again next year!

What are the pros? beauty, great trap crop

What are the cons? reseeds freely

Review:

I grow 3 types of amaranth. They are all easy to germinate, they are beautiful and they are a wonderful trap crop. Bugs eat the leaves, not the seeds. Since they bugs are full of amaranth, they don't eat the other veggies. Win, win. They can have the leaves-I get the seeds!
