Edible?Edible

Chiltern Seeds says: "This ever-popular hardy annual is perhaps more versatile than you might imagine - good in the border, most effective as a cut flower in arrangements, a good pot-plant and, not often appreciated - if carefully dried, the colour of the spikes remains unchanged for a considerable time. With neglect it will flower when only a very few inches high, but with generous treatment, specimens three or four feet or more with enormous drooping tassels of red flowers can be obtained. 3½ ft."
