What are the pros? Show Stopping Gorgeous!
What are the cons? Too well liked by insects.
We had 100% germination here. I didn't know what to expect; so, I didn't plant very much to begin with. After the first crop got about half way through to full maturity, we loved it so much I decided to grow more. I now have dozens of Amaranth. My back yard faces a park; and, people are so impressed with how beautiful this Garnet Amaranth looks they stop and ask what it is and comment on its beauty. It is definitely a show stopper! Since so many seedling came up, I thinned them and picked out any that had green on the leaves. So,now all of the plants in my garden have a very deep maroon color and the flowers are a brighter maroon color. I wish I could upload a picture. They are truly beautiful! I am anxious for it to go to seed, as the seeds will likely also be delicious. I bought seeds in the past strictly to cook. I made it like a cream of wheat by boiling in water (1 cup seeds per 3 cups water); add cream, vanilla, cinnamon and, top off with sliced banana. My family loves it!
