w17 Amaranthus starts to flower!

I really don’t know what these plants are, and I forget how come I bought them and planted them.   There is nothing wrong with them at all (although some websites suggest it is a weed), I just don’t know what to expect.   Well, last week I just happened to see an Amaranthus plant in full flower at The Eden Project in the rainforest Biome and it reminded me that its other name is “Love Lies Bleeding” as it is a funny red flower that sort of “dribbles” out of the top and down the leaves of the plant.

Anyway, I noticed when we got back, our own Amaranthus plants now have their “blood” starting to show.
