Q.Is Something Wrong If My Red Love Lies Bleeding Amaranth Is Turning Green?

Zone 98382 | Anonymous added on July 26, 2023 | Answered

It gets full sun, is in a pot 12” wide and 14 inches tall. About 10 other stems are also in the pot. The leaf edges remained red, just the center turned green. Now new leaves coming in on those plants are fully red. I water and fertilize. Thanks!

It could be weather related, or too much fertilizer. These plants do best in poor soil. Since the new growth is coming in red, I wouldn't be too worried. Could it have been the tricolor variety? If it grew from seed, sometimes the seed is not as labeled.
