I saw this plant once in its full glory. It was truly amazing!!! I have tried to grow it but killed it. Love all your Amaranthus, DavidofDeLand!

...and I would be happy to show you around Gardenguykin as long as was after March and before December! You would not see a stick on Amaranthus in my gardens today and we get a little rough in Winter here in Central Florida too. The picture was unexpected and personally appropriate as my plans were and are to start the Amaranthus seeds today! 6 varieties this year.

Thank you too Kell. I appreciate that...

My question is,..."How does this forum work and what is SITEADMINS?"
I like looking at 'Bug Files' too, and noticed that at the bottom of the page.

Thank all for the nice replies,... and sunkissed your last comment made me smile. Amaranthus will start a trend for itself in everyones gardens who grows it on its own! You will be setting a trend when your neighbors all ask you,..."What is that?!"

On my morning walk today I noticed a neighbor has a plant in the front garden. I'll spike up a conversation next time I see them out front.
