A gorgeous annual 4 to 6 feet tall with long, draping flower heads, this amaranth is a stunner in the garden and has so many uses! **These seeds were harvested in 2021 for 2022 season planting**

*Only available for domestic shipping, thanks for understanding!*

How to grow:
Site Selection: Annual, support of mature plants may be necessary. Plant in well drained soil. Full sun is preferred.

Start seeds: Sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost indoors. Barely cover seed. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Transplant outside after last frost. Or, direct seed after last frost, sow thinly, barely covering the seed. When seedlings have first true leaves, thin to 12-15″ apart.

Harvest: Anytime after flowers open.

Processing: Soak entire seed head, stem and leaves in warm to cool water immediately to extract color. Use an acid for best color transfer – see my blog post for more details! Does not color cellulose fibers well. Can also be multipurpose; eat young leaves, eat seeds or pop like popcorn!
