User: Amaranth (view this user's book)

The Amaranth in myth is a deep red or purple, never fading flower and a symbol of immortality. It is unwithering, never changing, always beautiful. In ancient Greece the flower was thought to have special healing powers and was used to decorate images of the gods and tombs.

To call this flower by any other name, one would call it Love Lies Bleeding.
