Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Red Garnet Amaranth Seed
Amaranthus caudatus Red Garnet Amaranth
7 grams - approximately 7000 seeds per seed pkg One gram will sow 45 feet at (thinned) spacing of 12-18” on 24” rows.
Intensely bright fuchsia-red plants are just much brighter than most Amaranths we think. Red Garnet can be used as a cooked green, allowed to flower for a dramatic display in the garden or grow it for grain! Some folks share the grain with the birds attracting beautiful buntings, goldfinches and other flying jewels. Red Garnet Amaranth will make a stunning addition to your edible flower or vegetable garden. We've had this beautiful plant grow to 10-12 feet! You'll get dozens of seed heads that will make beautiful arrangements or produce lots of seed!
I bought some of a few years back, and was not expecting them to get so Y'all! They grew at least 10 feet tall, and the seed heads grew so heavy, that doubled over, which made harvesting the seed much easier! Then mice got into the bin, so I never got to eat it.
Feedback: it would be really helpful if you would put the average mature height and width of the plants on each page. It would really help with planning.
