Organic Love Lies Bleeding Amaranth


NEW for 2022!

This Victorian era classic still turns heads, in the garden or in the vase, as it trails its impossibly romantic maroon blooms. Plants grow 3-5’, with dangling flower ropes up to 18” long. An easy to grow summer annual recommended for coastal or moderate climates – in our experience, it is not as heat-tolerant as other amaranths.

Seeds are edible, but not produced in large enough quantities to be worthwhile eating. For high seed production - not to mention tall ornamental flower spikes - please see Copperhead Amaranth and Opopeo Amaranth in the Grains section.
