Description

An heirloom favorite that is great for fresh and dried arrangements

Your grandmother probably grew red Love-Lies-Bleeding in her sunny annual garden, and this unusual green-flowered variety is also an heirloom we are proud to bring back to American gardens. All summer long (and sometimes even into fall) you'll be regaled with lime-green blooms in weeping stems up to 2 feet long. Terrific for fresh and dried arrangements, this Amaranthus is a conversation piece and a fine source of vertical texture for your sunny annual bed or border.

The flowers really stand out in long, slender, utterly prostrate 18- to 24-inch stems. They make fine additions to large arrangements, either as background color or bold front-and-center accents. And if you dry them, you can enjoy this rare color all winter long as Everlastings.

The plant grows quickly and easily in any well-drained soil receiving full sunshine. Expect it to reach anywhere from 3 to 5 feet tall and 18 to 30 inches wide. If you like Amaranthus, take a look at the other colorful offerings of this splendid family—Illumination, Perfecta (a true Summer Poinsetti), and the highly unusual Towers series, among others. And Love-Lies-Bleeding is a fine companion to other annuals from zinnia to pentas. Have fun combining this rare bloom color with all the whites, yellows, and reds in your garden.

Attention-getting even from across the garden, Green Love-Lies-Bleeding is a must-have for cut flower lovers and annual gardeners alike. Find out just how easy it is to grow and impossible not to love.
