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:

LOVE this stuff! It gives my early spring garden beds such a lovely color. I'm making a frittata with this and some spinach as I type. Self seeds and comes back for me faithfully every year.

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!
