Hopi Red Dye is a beautiful variety with dark, purplish-red leaves and burgundy-red flowers. It's terrific at the back of the border. Pictures can't do justice to this wonderful plant.
Amaranth 'Hopi Red Dye' has shiny, black seeds. They can be cooked for cereal or ground into a gluten-free flour. The leaves of this variety are my favorite for adding to soups. Use the tender leaves of young plants. 110 days to maturity.
