Amaranthus ‘Elephant Head’ (Amaranth) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: If you want to give your plants an extra-early start or have control over their exact placement, you could start the seeds indoors in mid- to late spring: sow 1/8 to 1/4″ deep in pots or deep cell packs in a warm, bright place. It’s usually easier to just sow them directly where you want them to grow, though, in late spring to early summer. If you allow the heads to mature in the garden, you may well find self-sown seedlings the following year.

‘Elephant Head’ amaranth (Amaranthus) produces stout, upright stems that generally reach 4 to 5 feet tall. They’re topped with large, dense, deep red bloom clusters that first appear in midsummer and fill out as the season progresses, usually with a taller, cylindrical center projection surrounded by shorter ones. It’s not unusual for the plant to lean a bit as the clusters develop, so the tip of the head may curve upward and resemble an elephant’s head complete with a long trunk. Or, it may look like something else, according to your imagination. One plant makes an interesting accent in a large container; a grouping in the garden makes a traffic-stopping statement. Full sun. Annual.

Collected in late September 2023. At least 25 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
