These are real show offs

These are a cinch to grow and haven’t been bothered by heatwaves or pests. I’m going to save the seeds to use in hot cereal, and my pet parakeets go crazy over amaranth. Strong stalks that need no staking.

Great growers

Unlike other plants I purchased, the Amaranths are taking the summer heat challenge (100+ degrees) and being more prolific in height and leaves.

Can’t Wait to Harvest

I can’t wait to try these! I have searched all over for Amaranth and finally found them here. It’s only been a week, but so far, it looks like it’s doing well. It’s growing. The leaves aren’t as burgundy as the picture shows. They have more of a green tint to them. The new growth seems to look more burgundy. I ordered during a busy week, so it took longer than normal to get to me. Nevertheless, I’m so excited I found them!

All time favorite

Butterflies love this plant, so it is hard to keep in my Maya Medicinal garden. I usually have just stalks. I re-potted these and they have doubled in size in 3 weeks. Entering the garden next weekend. While I love Monarchs, I would like some of the Amaranth for myself!
