There is no "Cinchona" tree listed in the Sunset New Western
Garden Book (one of the best resources for West Coast plants),
but amaranthus is a huge group of plants and some are considered weeds.
There are a few ornamentals, though, as well as some crop plants.
Quinoa is a grain from S. America in the amaranthus group.  Pigweed 
is an annual weed that is a tough beast to kill in some crops.  A plant
called Joseph's Coat is a really attractive amaranth grown as an 
ornamental.
