Amaranth, Elephant Head, Amaranthus gangeticus (70-80 days)

A plant with character if there ever was one!  Easily the most commented on plant on our farm during summer tours.  Grows to 2-5 feet tall and produces a large, thick, maroon/red flower stalk that looks like an upraised elephant’s trunk.  This species is not suitable as a grain crop, hence it is listed here with flowers for ornamental use.  Creative folks might perceive the one-fingered salute in this plant (;
