Amaranth - 4 Pack


Hopi Red Dye

A stunningly vibrant ornamental with myriad traditional Indigenous uses. Originally grown as a dye plant by the southwestern Hopi Nation. Plants reach 4-6 feet and cut a most striking figure in the garden! The Hopis use the deep red flower bract as a natural dye to color their world-renowned piki bread. The brilliant red dye rendered from its flowers can be used in craft projects and as a natural food dye -- the possibilities are endless. 


Golden Giant 

The attractive golden-colored flower heads produce up to 1 pound of white seed per plant, making this a very heavy producer. These seeds are high in protein, and they can be cooked in a number of ways: popped like popcorn, stewed into porridge, and more. Young leaves are also tasty as cooked greens. Plants grow to about 6 feet and are easy to grow.



A fountain of eye-catching magenta-burgundy blooms! Here’s a different amaranth—curious flower heads in a weeping habit, with “tassels” sometimes reaching down to the ground. Compact plants seldom exceed 3-4 feet in height. Seeds and young leaves are edible and highly nutritious. This variety is stunning in beds and borders and it makes a top-notch cutting flower for floral design. Adds some serious drama to the garden!
