Take on the tradition of the Victorian era with eye catching floral trend setter, Amaranthus. Redemption Seeds offers both species, the upright plume 'A. cruentus' and the beloved tassels species 'A. caudatus'. Amaranthus is easy to grow from direct seed, prefers heat and full sun. Plant after danger of last frost in rich, composted soil for best results. Space this variety 2' to 3' feet apart. Although Amaranthus is drought tolerant, it will thrive best with adequate watering. Bring a bit of drama to your garden with rich tones of burgundy, red, copper & lime. Makes an excellent cut flower.
