A magnificent fountain of fiery color! Always a scene-stealer in our trial gardens, Illumination stops visitors in their tracks! Each tall, sturdy column has bright green leaves below a densely-packed eruption of gold and crimson foliage that stays colorful from midsummer till frost!
The warm weather brings out the magnificent colors in this sun-lover. The upper 1/3 of these 4- to 5-foot tall plants is devoted to the brilliant foliage, while the lower two-thirds remains green. You can see why this Amaranthus is called Summer Poinsettia — if only the holiday plant were as tall, long-lasting, and easy to grow!
Amaranthus is ideal for warm, sunny, well-drained spots. It makes a superb background accent, hedge, or border subject. Very drought-tolerant. Pkt is 200 seeds.
