Amaranth (Amaranthus) is an easy-to-grow annual that thrives in full sun and during warm weather. The plants grow 1-1/2 to 6 feet tall and bloom in a variety of colours, including gold, red or orange, depending on the species. The more common amaranth reaches a mature height of 1 to 2 feet. Amaranth is intolerant of shade, wet soil and frost, and prefers warm, well-drained soil. The flowers grow on long, straight stems and have a lengthy blooming time, from the middle of summer until frost. The flowers dry very well and retain their colour for an extended period of time. Amaranth is also resistant to diseases and insects.
Many Amranthus species are are cultivated as leaf vegetables, cereals, or ornamental plants. Amaranthus primarily serves as an annual ornamental. Amaranthus leaves and seeds are edible with nutritional properties.
