Like a golden sunset in the garden. The long, erect flower heads are burnt orange against the green foliage that develops autumn tones with maturity. It blends beautifully with flowering salvias and, to complete the package, provides a nutritious food source. Leaves can be blanched and eaten like spinach and grain can be easily harvested as the flowers begin to dry. Amaranth grain is an excellent source of protein for vegetarians.
