Amaranthus Cruentus (Hot Biscuits) - What an incredibly unique and attractive annual that can be established so easily from Amaranthus seeds! As shown in this image from Auburn University, Hot Biscuits Amaranthus plants are topped with clusters of ginger orange or cinnamon-colored flowers. The deep green foliage is equally as beautiful as the flower clusters.

Hot Biscuits can grow up to 120 cm (48 inches) in height and will bloom from early summer to fall. Amaranthus Hot Biscuits are used as a cut flower and are long-lasting in the vase.
