Amaranthus caudatus is a species of annual flowering plant and I like it a lot. The common names of this flowering plant are: love-lives-bleeding, pendant amaranth, love-lies a bleeding, velvel flower, foxtail amaranth, tassel flower and quelite. This kind of plan produces pinkish red, opalescent, tiny seed that is both ornamental and edible and draping plumes with distinctly beautiful. There is not enough information about this flowering plants but I do my best to tell you all about it. Amaranthus caudatus can grow anywhere from 3 to 8 feet in height, and grows best in full sun. This flowering plants easily grow from seed, plants and can be started outdoor and indoor. If you live in the cold climate, you can start planting indoors in early spring and transplant them outdoor after the last frost. I never see this kind of flowering plants in this country. I wish we have this kind of flower, it is very beautiful. The uses of this flowering plants are: the seeds are eaten as a cereal grain. They are ground into flour, popped like popcorn, cooked into a porridge and made into a confectionery called alegria. The leaves can be eaten too, some people cooked the leaves like spinach.
