This is a delightful variety of Orach which is also known as Mountain Spinach. Ruby Orach produces glorious tall flowers and seeds that turn from deep crimson and fade to warm caramel. The beautiful architectural flower spikes look magnificent in garden beds and these easy to grow beauties are also perfect for cutting and drying. They make a stunning arrangement in large bouquets or in vases. In ancient times the leaves were grown as a highly nutritious vegetable and it has become popular again in culinary dishes today.
