Amaranthus Caudatus

 

Exotic and easy to grow in sub-tropical gardens, it is lovely in floral ararngements or in the garden. While the genus name, Amaranthus, comes from the Green word amarantos, which means unfading, it refers to the long-lasting blooms, rather than the lifespan of the plant. Its species name, caudatus, means with a tail, the meaning of which is clear as soon as you see the long, swinging strings of blooms that droop, sometimes from the very top of the plant to ground level.

 

Does well in full sun. Direct seed or start in a smaller pot and transplant. Looks best in the back of a bed as it can get up to 4 feet tall. The leaves and seeds of Amaranth are a food around the world, but this variety is for your flower garden.
