A showstopping plant that steals the scene in garden or vase, Dreadlocks is a joyously bright, floriferous, unique Amaranthus you won’t want to miss. Not only are its magenta blooms eye-catchingly bright, but its distinctively weeping habit sets it apart from every other plant in the annual bed — and begs to be used in fresh and everlasting bouquets indoors!
Dreadlocks is an upright plant about 3 feet tall and up to 18 inches wide. Its flower stems point straight down, however, reaching 3 feet to brush the garden floor. All along the stems, closely spaced, are borne magenta blooms in big, tight, rounded 1?-inch clusters. No plant has ever been more aptly named, for these long, elegant flowering stems really do look just like dreadlocks!
Amaranthus is a sun-loving annual that is easy to grow and very long-blooming. Its unique architectural look makes a fine focal point for annual beds, and its bright blooms keep their color well. Pkt is 50 seeds.
