Comment: 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"

Comment: 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"

Comment: 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!
