Chinese Spinach ThreeColor (Amaranthus Tricolor) 100 seeds (#906)

Amaranthus tricolor is an ornamental annual plant.

This cultivar have striking yellow, red and green foliage.
The leaves may be eaten as a salad vegetable as well as the stems. In Africa, it is usually cooked as a leafy vegetable. It is usually steamed as a side dish in both China and Japan.
Prefers a light well-drained fertile soil in a sunny position, though it does succeed in heavier soils. Tolerates fairly acid soils. Tolerates a pH in the range 4.3 to 7.8.
