Hot Biscuits Amaranth Seed
Amaranth 'Hot Biscuits' Amaranthus cruentus
One of the most productive and easy to grow summer fillers, ‘Hot Biscuits’ produces abundant Bronze stems that add a textural and linear quality to arrangements and bouquets. I grew this for the first time this past season, and just loved the vintage feel it added to bouquets with bright colors. (I adore it with pinks!) I decided I HAD to collect seeds to share!
