5034-CO Amaranthus cruentus 'Hopi Red Dye'
(Annual. 25 days for greens.)
This am-aranth is actually prized for its tender baby leaves —use them to add a splash of magenta to your salad. Mature plants have deep red leaves and bright flowers, and collect nutritious black seed, which the Hopi still use to make red corn bread. Will frost kill.
