Amaranth Plants at Food For Thought:
Amaranth in Food For Thought’s Garden (pics):
Amaranth (red and green) along a fence. 8 feet high!
Close-up view of red and green amaranth varieties. Swayin’ in the wind, waiting for harvest.
Elephant head amaranth (Amaranthus gangeticus). This species grows 2-3 feet.
Close-up of elephant head amaranth in the Food For Thought garden.
Massive red amaranth with green stalk leans over. A shrub! Note the stalk's ridges which give it girder-like support. Also note the small offshoots that display the red flowers.
Amaranth with golden stalk and flowers.
Relaxing, restoring, rejoicing with amaranth, sunflower, and garden love.
