Annual. Often called Globe Amaranth (it is an amaranth relative, but petite by comparison), plants seldom exceed 2 feet in height. The thimble-shaped, papery flower heads are just an inch across and produced in great numbers. Colors are tones of white, pink, and rosy reds. Great for cut-flower use and 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!and drought, too. Beloved old-fashioned garden plant that is finding renewed favor!

What are the pros? easy to grow, pretty

What are the cons? weedy looking before blooming

Review:

I grew these in a tub on my balcony. I threw the seed down in April and they came up pretty quickly. They look weedy before they bloom and they didn't bloom until mid-July. They're still blooming now in late September and react well to drought/low water conditions, dying back from the flower heads and then sending new flowers and leaves when the water comes back. The flowers are a range of pretty pinks and purples and are constantly humming with bees.

Review:

These little beauties are fantastic if you're looking for something pretty to bloom all summer and stand up to the heat! I live in North Texas, and first planted these in the midst of what became a very hot summer - hotter than normal (2011). I literally just threw the seeds around my raised beds and lo and behold, they grew quickly and bloomed all summer long. They don't need any fussing, just a bit of water and sun, and bam! You've got blooms until the frost. I love these and plant them every year - they are fantastic! I provide a decorative stake and that helps to train them and keep upright, but it's not necessary.
