Amaranth Red

by Vivienne
(California)

I grew this Amaranth Red last summer here in far Northern CA where it gets triple digit heat every year. I planted it on the south side of my house next to a wall in a old wood box which measures 15"x28" X 15" deep. The plant was supposed to grow to 3'-4' tall. Mind you....I planted NINE plants from seeds covered lightly. Watered everyday all season by nozzle.They ALL sprouted and grew above the ROOF of the house to NINE FEET TALL before the beautiful seed strands began to droop down another FOUR FEET! I had to support them by tieing them up just below the gutter.They were absolutely stunning! I wish I could post a pic with this review!
