Herbs - Amaranth Seeds

Amaranth is a broad family of plants that were originally used as a grain by ancient people groups of Asia and the Americas. It is easy to grow, easy to harvest, easy to cook, and the seeds are a very good source of protein, thus making it an ideal crop for primitive cultures. There are wild forms of the plant that are commonly known as "Pigweed" and their growth is so vigorous that it creates problems for us in the fields. Amaranth can still be grown as a food source today, but more often it is grown out as a decorative plant. Varieties like "Love Lies Bleeding" has large hanging seed heads that are unique and brightly colored. It can be dried down as well, and arranged with other dried flowers to preserve its unique hanging character.
