Amaranth From Every Angle

I have so much to say about amaranth that I hardly know where to start. So take a look at these pictures.

Isn’t it pretty? Amaranth is sometimes grown as an ornamental, sometimes for greens, and sometimes for grain, but probably most often by accident, because it’s also a common weed. This is a variety called ‘Elena’s Rojo,’ and it’s a variety that is supposed to be good for growing as a grain,  but is also an amazing looking plant. It’s been competing with the sunflowers all summer for the title of tallest plant in my garden, and of course, it’s that deep red.

Just one more.
