    Yes Christine, a fabulous large annual (up to 1.5m) with one of the best common names: Love Lies Bleeding.

    Flowers last 6-8 weeks, July to September, and are great in arrangements, freshly cut or dried, though the red turns bronze or light brown in the latter state.

    Makes a strong statement in the garden, though can be picky about where it will thrive. Needs full sun and moist, well drained soil.

    Amaranthus leaves and seeds are said to be edible and often harvested for food in India and S. America.

    If you let me have your address, I'll send you some seeds when they are ready.
    Save in a cool dry place and sow early spring.
    As you can see from the photographs attached they may not all come true from seed but you should have more than enough seedlings to diss-guard those not wanted.
