AMARANTHUS HYBRID

Common nameamaranth
Familyamaranthaceae
Life cycleannual
Lightsun
From seed germinate at room temperature (or slightly warmer)
detailed seed-starting info below

'Opopeo' has upright purple spikes; our seedlings have slightly different forms, some more uniformly colored than others. 'Hopi Red Dye' (A. cruentus x powellii) has burgundy foliage with scarlet plumes. A new favorite this past year was 'Oeschberg', which sports the most brilliant burgundy plumes, arranged almost spirally when young; it also held its foliage and flower color longer than other similarly colored varieties.
