This diverse variety has a number of unique qualities that have gained my attention. First, the plants themselves are striking, a large percentage having the "magenta leaf" trait in the young leaves, and growing to 7' tall, many plants with bright red stems. The seed is vividly multicolored from jet black through chocolate, nut brown, buff, pink, cherry, yellow and white. Seeds are larger than the other varieties offered here. Makes a handsome cut flower for the adventurous florist. Originated in the Bolivian/Chilean introductions to Colorado, ca. 1980, fostered by John McCamant and farming partners at White Mountain Farm.
