Yes @tina but it's more a purplish red rather than a true purple. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

My first attempt at Amaranthus this year and they are looking something like! Have them edging the front boarder going to increase the volume for next year for more impact I think. 👍🏻👍🏻 #amaranthus #loveliesbleeding #ribbonsandbeads #goodforbirds #wildlifefriendly #red

Hi Wesley @wesleybrian I would say make sure you thin them out and pot them on as soon as they are large enough to handle. I left mine a bit late and ended up waiting ages for them to flower. I think they were a little bit stunted from not having enough light and space to thrive. There fine now but not as big as they could have been. Defo growing them again next year. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
