Dysphania ambrosioides is used as a leaf vegetable, herb, and herbal tea for its pungent flavor. There are parts of this plant, mostly the seeds, that contain an essential oil that if taken in excess is highly toxic. Even though this plant has an established place in recipes and in folklore, it is wise to use only the leaves, and those very sparingly, in cooking.

Gomphrena sp., Globe amaranth, Bachelor's buttons

Gomphrena haageana 'Carmine'
 Gomphrena sp.
Family: Amaranthaceae
Globe amaranth, Bachelor's buttons
Origin: Central Tropical America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Gomphrenas are used in annual beds and borders. In masses, the round flowerheads produce an interesting texture, and their bright colors last late into the season. Their low stature makes them well suited for edging around taller plantings. Globe amaranth is often grown in containers on the porch or deck. The conelike flowerheads are beautiful in dried arrangements and will hold their shape and color indefinitely. To grow gomphrena for cut flowers or dried arrangements, plant closely together to force longer stems.
