Wonderful ornamental amaranth with branching spikes of burgundy. Used as a dye plant creating pink textiles and paper. Leaves are also eddible and very nutritious. They are best havested at a young state if eating raw and before flower if steming or sautéing. This variety is not recomended as a grain amaranth however we have not tried popping it. Let us know if you do!!
