Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and Colorful These seeds germinate well. I love these plants because they are unique and colorful. A nice change from caladiums and coleus!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not germinate I reside in Santa Fe, NM. Amaranth is very common here. It grows all over town in sidewalk cracks, and along roadsides and in vacant lots. Burgundy amaranth is very common. This variety of amaranth I have not seen and was intrigued. Sadly, the seed did not germinate. A number of other heat tolerant plants that I direct sowed in the same plot where I sowed this seed did germinate quite successfully. So, either this seed requires much more moisture than other varieties of amaranth to germinate or the seeds I got were duds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disappointed I did not have any Amaranthus survive. I started some of the seeds indoors in March. They died. The seeds I planted in my garden later didn't even germinate. We had such a cold Spring and hot summer, they didn't have a chance. Years ago I had gorgeous Amaranthus & wanted them again. And I will try again with you next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show stopper We've had amaranthus before but this variety is a real show stopper! People driving by or walking by have to stop and admire the plants. We started the seeds in our small green house. They were easy to grow and seem to like the hot, humid weather here along the Chesapeake bay. And, they are gorgeous!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Summer Poinsettia mix I winter sowed these seeds. While it took them longer to germinate than other plants, they finally came thru, but lingered behind all the others. After gently transplanting them into their beds, they didn't take off. Its Aug and although they are pretty, they are short and blooms are suppressed. LOVE the color! Next year I will direct sow and plant in the back of the border hoping that they earn their reputation.
