These statuesque 3′-4′ tall amaranths have feathery spikes of warm cinnamon; bronze tipped pistachio-green plumes that gently ruffle in the slightest summer breeze. They are quick and easy to grow, adding height and beauty to summer gardens and an intriguing component to flower arrangements. Picture its fuzzy spires with sunflowers and purple asters in early fall, and you will soon be a fan of Autumn Palette. The young leaves can be eaten fresh in salads or cooked like spinach, and the mature seeds are edible nutritious grains. Plants are drought hardy when established.
