Amaranthus, popularly known as Love Lies Bleeding or Tassel Flower, is a spectacular and dramatic display of cascading, brilliant red seed heads that can grow up to 3' feet long with plants topping 6' feet tall. Dangling like shimmering strands of ruby jewels, this enchanting plant brings significant textural appeal to every garden style. This variety is a favorite among floral artists and landscaping creatives alike as a point of architectural focal interest. Amaranthus is a heat loving variety that thrives during the hot summer months. Despite the baking sun, the colorful seed strands are color stable and fade resistant. Originally documented in the late 1600's, this easy to grow favorite has been gracing gardens for over 300 years! The green leaves are also edible and typically prepared like cooked greens. Packet: 100 seeds.
