As usual I am late to the party; hope there are some crumbs left!
What a lovely baby photo--brand new!
I have grown amaranth in pots for the lovely foliage--deep burgundy, and stunning with the sun behind it.Unusual flowers, and apparently you can eat the seeds as a grain. Don't know what variety--there are several kinds and colours. Am doing again this year-but early yet. Would get quite tall if planted in the ground.
