Amaranth (Elephant Head)

$3.00

The seeds are highly nutritious and the young leaves are tasty cut-and-come-again greens that can be eaten like spinach. Height depends on soil and exposure. Drought-resistant. Self-seeds.

Each reddish purple 12–24″ flower head could look like an elephant trumpeting, a troll with a big nose, or other comical shapes. As it gets larger and heavier it leans over, looking even funnier. The tiny seeds are edible popped or ground into flour. Self-seeds.
