Amaranth, Dreadlocks

95% of 100

90 Days. A fountain of eye-catching magenta-burgundy blooms! Here’s a different amaranth—curious flower heads in a weeping habit, with “tassels” sometimes reaching down to the ground. Compact plants seldom exceed 3-4 feet in height. Seeds and young leaves are edible and highly nutritious. This variety is stunning in beds and borders and it makes a top-notch cutting flower for floral design. Adds some serious drama to the garden!
