In South America love-lies-bleeding is known as Kiwicha, a word from one of the Inka languages, the Quecha. The Aztecs called it huautli. Other modern common names are foxtail, pigweed, tassel flower, velvet flower, quilete and amaranth. The name amaranth is Greek and means: „amárantos“ unfading, „ánthos“ flower. Love-lies-bleeding's young leafs can be prepared like spinach or used as cooking spice. They are best picked befor the blooming. The seedlings can be eaten as well, so does the taproot, but the later one tends to lignify and has to be grounded then. Fairies love to use dried blossoms for decoration, for they retain their colour a long time, and the fresh plants to dye their fabrics.
