Few plants can boast the incredible range of colours that Bicolor Illumination Amaranthus does - not even when they’re in flower! It’s as if this plant decided that leaves ought to be as showy and artistic as the brightest flowers in your garden. The older leaves are deep green, strikingly marked with chocolate brown while the tips combine a gold edge with sunset shades of rose, or even red. It's a must for anyone who loves the unusual. Enjoy it as a summer annual that stops passersby in their tracks.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Amaranth is generally sown as a summer annual, but if you live in areas that have cooler, shorter seasons, sow seeds indoors in the early spring and transplant outside after all danger of frost has passed. For direct sowing, it is best to sow in rows and then thin out to approximately 30cm apart. Seeds germinate with soil temperatures between 18-25C and plants will grow best in full sun.
