Amarath Red Garnet
Amaranth ‘Garnet Red’ is a cultivar of the Amaranth tricolor species with a deep, intense crimson red colouring. Although it is an annual plant, it can quickly reach up to 1.6 meters producing a striking garden display. It is the most intensely colored amaranth and produces the best color in very warm conditions. The leaves are red tinged on the darkish grey-green surface and a deeper red underneath. The veins also appear red and the colour intensifies with the heat. The long lasting, blooms are presented on long straight stems, extending upwards in spear like, crimson plumes.
