Description

Widely adapted, it withstands hot, humid, dry weather

No sunny annual bed is complete without globe amaranth, and you'll love the brilliant plum coloring, abundant blooms, and superior heat tolerance of Las Vegas mix. Butterflies and hummingbirds flock to these big, full flowers bobbing atop slender stems, and you will adore cutting the stems for fresh and dried bouquets. Easy and so delightful, Las Vegas will surely become one of your favorites.

These flowers are very full, packed with florets of rich, inky plum purple, pale pink, or snowy white. They last a long time, look great in the sunny garden, and keep coming all summer long.

Expect Las Vegas to reach about 18 inches high and to spread 18 to 24 inches wide in the garden. Though very versatile when it comes to soil type, this globe amaranth needs good drainage, and does best in reasonably fertile garden soil or potting mix. (It is a lovely container choice.) Plant it among your marigolds and petunias, angelonias and celosias, for a nice contrast in shape and texture. Perfect for large drifts in the meadow garden, too.

One of the best things about gomphrena is its quickness. You'll go from sowing to seeing blooms in less than 3 months in most cases, and few seeds are easier. Add Las Vegas mix to your annuals list today.

Really Enjoyed

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These did so well for me last year. Started indoors. Put tiny seedlings outside and they grew so well. Color stayed until first frost. I am going to try drying them this year. I am in 8a.
