    One of the most productive and easy-to-grow summer fillers you can find, this towering beauty is the best dark variety of amaranth on the market. The large, rich burgundy-toned stems add a unique textural quality to arrangements. While the underside of the leaf is dark, the top side is a dusty plum.

    Site: full sun
    Days to maturity: 65-75 days
    Plant spacing: 12”

    How to Grow:
    Transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Plant 12'' apart, pinch at 12'', and needs netting support.

    Harvesting/Vase Life:
    Harvest when seed heads are about ¾ of the way open. Remove most of the foliage so the colorful spikes are more visible. Expect a vase life of 7 days.
