Here are some photos of amaranth flowers (below). The genius, Amaranthus, includes at least 70 species of amaranth and immense diversity. Only certain varieties are used for their “grains" (seeds, actually) and leafy greens. In fact, many varieties are considered weeds. However, many species offer colorful foliage and beautiful unique flowers, so if you live in a climate where the plant is not invasive it might be a great, robust one to add to the garden.
