Atriplex hortensis

"Red Orach"

Once seen back lit by the sun, the color of bruised raspberries are brought to mind, and red orach becomes an absolute necessity in the garden. Originally grown as a spinach-like vegetable, this red-leafed form is now more ornamental than anything else. If allowed to grow in rich, moist soil, it can reach 5' to 6' tall. Beautiful next to almost anything - have fun! Reseeds!
