Bull's Blood beets are grown for their delicious, slightly globed shaped beets & their rich, flavorful leaves that look gorgeous in a salad or dish. This annual vegetable can reach 8-18" tall. The brilliant red leaves are about 2-3" wide & the roots are just as dark & bright red as the foliage. Plant this vegetable in a container with other plants, the red color of the roots can even turn the other plants purple. Plant this heirloom vegetable in partial sun. They prefer deep, loose soil, with even & moderate water. Mulch your soil to protect the roots from heat.

 

While for edible reasons you want to scissor harvest your plants when ready, let a few stay of these ornamental plants flower to keep beneficial insects happy.
