Amaranth is grown as a food crop in some areas. The seeds are tiny, and each plant produces millions of them.

There are colours other than red, but I have not seen any this summer, but there are the two types of red.

The drooping blossoms are also called love lies bleeding.

I've not eaten the grain... yet... But have always love the rich, red-pink flowers! :o) Happy Weekend, Judy ((HUGS))

Beautiful flowers. You do get around. We're going to live in Perth in September. Hopefully, a whole new batch of flora and fauna to photograph, although it's the similar type of ecosystem!
There is a tree frog that lives in the mailbox, below the hanging planter!!! Isn't that kewl??

I don't think I've ever seen one of these - they're quite beautiful!

I don't believe I have eaten this grain, but I have seen the blossoms. You got some beautiful macros.
