Amaranthus

Originally a cereal crop cultivated by the Incas for its nutritional value as well as being packed with amino acids. So important was this crop to the Incas, that when Pizarro asked to be taken to where they stored their most valuable items, expecting to find gold, he was shown to eight massive stone granaries filled with the seeds of the amaranthus. When you consider that each seed is smaller than a pinhead, that is a stunning amount.

Today, floral professionals are the benefactors of this rich heritage and new hybrids. From the classic “Love-lies-Bleeding” (A. cuadatus), as well as green hanging Amaranthus, the Coral Fountains (hanging coral amaranthus) to the new upright gold and bronze varieties, this is a fabulous group of cut flowers. They have a good vase life, and the different types represent a valuable design asset
