Gomphrena, Globosa Mixed

99% of 100

Annual. Often called Globe Amaranth, this amaranth relative is petite by comparison. Plants seldom exceed 2' 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!
