You've got to go see the fabulous amaranthus photos in the Annuals Forum. Here's the link.
Reminds me of sea coral!

Cameron, now you've got me wanting these. weren't they gorgeous? Thanks for the link, looks like I'll be hitting the seed racks one more time sigh...
Those were lovely! I have grown Love Lies Bleeding in a pot before, and liked them. I have never seen or heard of the ones in those photos, but they look like they should be posted here. I want to try some of those next year!
Thanks for the link, Cameron!
Amaranthus 'Intense Purple'

Some neat amaranthus photos
Cameron,I started some Amaranthus(red) from seed this spring and was able to get one seedling to actually grow. I was inspired when I saw them in Brenda's Red Bed.
Those pictures are amazing...such a beautiful plant.Vikki
I ordered seeds for Amaranth Magic Fountains from heirloomseeds.com this week. They have about six types listed on sale.
I grew 2 kinds of Amaranthus this year. Velvet curtains and Autumn shades. Its along the edge of my Monet garden.
I have tried tri-color in the past, but that one just doesn't grow well for me for some reason. The seeds germinate then stay really small. This one may need more hot weather than what we have here.
Echo all of the above!! Thanks for the link.
I grew 'Oeschberg'this year and I really like the purple leaves and flowers. I got seed from Select Seeds and I've linked a photo from their website.
