(Amaranthus hypochondriacus) Amazing dwarf amaranth variety offers all the style and brilliant color of ornamental amaranth, but at a reasonable size! Cute little plants reach only to about 3 feet in height, making them perfect for smaller gardens or containers. The rich crimson blooms offer an unexpected pop of color. The flowers dry nicely and of course the green-to-burgundy leaves and shiny black seeds are edible and delicious!

What are the pros? short & pretty

What are the cons? a little TOO easy to grow

Review:

I planted this amaranth mainly for birdseed, since I didn't expect our growing season to be long enough to get enough grain for household use. Germination in the greenhouse was nearly 100% and every plant formed a beautiful seed head right away. While I really enjoyed the show this year (and so did the quail), I'm guessing I'll have a lot of volunteer plants next year where I don't want them.
