Your grandmother probably grew red Love-Lies-Bleeding in her sunny annual garden, and this unusual green-flowered variety is also an heirloom we are proud to bring back to American gardens! All summer long (and sometimes even into fall!) you’ll be regaled with lime-green blooms in weeping stems up to 2 feet long! Terrific for fresh and dried arrangements, this Amaranthus is a conversation piece and a fine source of vertical texture for your sunny annual bed or border!
The flowers really stand out in long, slender, utterly prostrate 18- to 24-inch stems. They make fine additions to large arrangements, either as background color or bold front-and-center accents. And if you dry them, you can enjoy this rare color all winter long as Everlastings!
The plant grows quickly and easily in any well-drained soil receiving full sunshine. Expect it to reach anywhere from 3 to 5 feet tall and 18 to 30 inches wide. If you like Amaranthus, take a look at the other colorful offerings of this splendid family — Illumination,Perfecta (a true Summer Poinsettia!), and the highly unusual Towers series, among others! And Love-Lies-Bleeding is a fine companion to other annuals from Zinnia to Pentas. Have fun combining this rare bloom color with all the whites, yellows, and reds in your garden!
Attention-getting even from across the garden, Green Love-Lies-Bleeding is a must-have for cutflower lovers and annual gardeners alike. Find out just how easy it is to grow and impossible not to love! Pkt is 200 seeds.
