A gorgeous annual 4 to 6 feet tall with long, draping flower heads, this amaranth is a stunner in the garden and has so many uses! **These seeds were harvested in 2020 for 2021 season planting**

*Only available for domestic shipping, thanks for understanding!*

How to grow:
Site Selection: Annual, support of mature plants may be necessary. Plant in well drained soil. Full sun is preferred.

Start seeds: Sow 4-6 weeks before the last frost indoors. Barely cover seed. Bottom water or mist to avoid covering seeds with displaced soil. Transplant outside after last frost. Or, direct seed after last frost, sow thinly, barely covering the seed. When seedlings have first true leaves, thin to 12-15" apart.

Harvest: Anytime after flowers open.

Processing: Soak entire seed head, stem and leaves in warm to cool water immediately to extract color. Use an acid for best color transfer. Does not color cellulose fibers well. Can also be multipurpose; eat young leaves, eat seeds or pop like popcorn!

I would definitely order from Kendra again! I was surprised at how fast my dye garden seeds shipped and she was so helpful with answering my questions and giving me tips (I’m super super new to natural dyeing and haven’t done a dye garden before so her help was so useful!)

They came right away with instructions. I started some outdoors and some indoors and they all came up, but starting outside seemed the best but I'm sure they will catch up. Excited to see them grow big! Thanks
