Description
 

This is a plant with character and striking beauty. A Heirloom that went to the USA with German immigrants in 1880, but is in fact an ancient grain of both the Far East and the Aztecs. The name Amaranth actually comes from the Greek 'everlasting'. It can grow up to 1.5 m tall, thick marroon red flower stalk that looks like an upraised elephant trunk, from whence the name comes. As well as a stunning flower display, the young leaves are edible and late in the season will give a plentiful amount of nutritious high protein seeds.
