Originally grown as a dye plant by the southwestern Hopi Nation, this variety has the reddest seedlings of any amaranth known, making it a natural for micro-green mixes! Plants reach 4-6 feet and cut a most striking figure in the garden! The Hopis use the deep-red flower bract as a natural dye to color their world-renowned piki bread.

Review:

This plant is beautiful and was easy to grow in our hot and humid summer. I started it early under lights and planted it out in mid May. I’m growing it for edible seed and leaves and also as a dye plant. Everyone who comes to my garden is amazed by its beauty.

Review:

I am a novice gardener at best, but these Amaranth plants produced well for me! I'm still waiting to harvest the seeds once the plants dry out, but I have been using the flowers to dye yarn and roving. I moved before getting the plants in the ground and didn't have a lot of garden space, so I only ended up with a few plants, but nearly every single seed germinated! Everything that I got in the ground took off and grew surprisingly well, around 4' in height. Using the solar jar dying method, I left mason jars filled with water, vinegar, flowers, seeds, and yarn on my porch. I achieved beautiful pastel pinks but also some more vibrant hot pinks with materials left out for over a week. I dyed mostly shetland and a bfl/tussah silk mix, both took the color wonderfully. I have yet to do any tests on how long the color will last, especially in the sun, but for my first year growing amaranth, it was a success all around!

Beautiful trap crop
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow, trap crop

What are the cons? Prolific seeder

Review:

Grows easily from seed. If seed heads not removed will produce hundreds if not thousands of seedlings next year. Great trap crop for striped cucumber beetles. They prefer to eat amaranth leaves over cucumber plants so I let them eat the leaves and they leave my cucumber plants alone. I include young small leaves in salad green mixes.
