Tender annual open pollinated, Heirloom. As the name represents, when this flower blooms it looks like an elephant’s trunk is pointing towards the sky. This deep red flower is large and can be 10–12" long on a 3–5' tall plant and make excellent cut flowers. These flowers retain some color when dried, making then good for dried flower arrangements! Absolutely stunning food plant! Seeds are edible and can be popped. Flower heads appear in late summer, producing seeds that are used like a cereal grain, milled into a gluten-free flour or cooked whole and eaten in place of rice and oatmeal. The leaves can be used as a cooked green.
Some folks might perceive the one-fingered salute in this plant. A plant with character if there ever was one. All zones.
