Product Description

Amaranth 'Opopeo'
Amaranthus cruentus

One of the most productive and easy to grow summer fillers you can find, this towering beauty is the best dark variety of amaranth on the market. The large, rich burgundy-toned stems add a unique textural quality to arrangements. While the underside of the leaf is dark, the top side is a dusty plum.
