Flaunts glorious 2' chestnut-bronze to copper-colored well-branched seedheads atop its majestic 4' stalks at maturity. Pinch back to facilitate branching. A wonderful decorative complement to the red amaranths, used as a garden backdrop or to give harvest arrangements a bright earthy autumnal color. Easy to grow. Also, an underused food plant both for its seeds and its young leaves, though the seeds may require too long to mature in our climate.
