Annual—Often called Globe Amaranth, and it is an amaranth relative, but petite by comparison—plants seldom exceed 2 feet in height. And the thimble-shaped, papery flower heads are just an inch across, produced in great numbers. Colors are tones of white, pink, and rosy reds. Great for cut-flower use, fine for drying. Also well proportioned for containers, where it makes an unusually long-lasting display. Takes heat
and drought, too. Beloved old-fashioned garden plant that is finding renewed favor!
