Amaranth, Red Dye, Amaranthus cruentus x A. powelli (110 days)
A tall (4-5') self-seeding annual that was originally used by the Hopi people as a dye for ceremonial feasts. Very easy and rewarding to grow, it adds tremendous visual appeal to gardens with its burgundy foliage, stems and flower plumes. Young leaves are tasty eaten raw in salads. This species is not suitable as a grain crop, hence it is listed here with flowers for ornamental use. HEIRLOOM. SSF.
