Growing to approximately 24 inches tall, this variety of Amaranthus grows in full sun to part shade, and looks terrific grown in clusters or in borders as a contrast with other foliage plants. Amaranthus Early Splendor plant seeds are fast to establish and upward growth is quick.

Note: I have found that there is a tiny beetle that loves this plant in my neck of the woods. I treated the plant with diatomaceous earth – food grade and it takes care of that tiny stripe beetle. Neem oil is not a good idea at all. The plant does not like Neem oil…. I found this out the hard way, although the plant has survived it has bad blemishes on the leaves….ugh.
