Joseph's Coat, October 6-7, 2013

Amaranthus, Joseph's Coat, September 28, 2013
North Mississippi Research and Extension Center, Verona, MS, USA
This is the largest and prettiest Joseph's Coat I've ever seen.
I wish it were in my garden, but it is not.
We saw it on the Research and Extension Center Garden Tour.

Have a wonderful week!

  4. What a remarkable looking plant!

    Today was my first day back at work after the rainy holiday - buts a rainy day on holiday is better than a sunny day at work!

  5. That is the most splendid plant. I've never seen one up close and personal. Every garden should have one!

    My Monday Mellow Yellows are of Indian women in colorful saris.

  6. Beautiful colors, very bright. And even edible, though probably only popular with Asians.

    1. I checked several Internet sources and found that it is edible. Young leaves are used like spinach. Some varieties of Joseph's Coat make large seedheads that are used as grain.
      But for me personally, no I would not eat it.
      Thanks for visiting my blog

  10. I grew amaranthus, the one commonly known as 'Love Lies Bleeding,' some years ago, but the foliage was no where as beautiful as this one! What a decorative plant to have in the garden!
