Amaranthus caudatus
“Love-Lies-A-Bleeding"
Amaranthus caudatus “Love-Lies-A-Bleeding"

Looking like nothing else in the garden, this old-fashioned annual makes a stunning accent. Long, weeping, dark red tassels are borne above heart shaped leaves Summer thru Fall. It can grow anywhere from 3-8 (!) feet tall & 2’ wide depending on how free you are with your manure. An outrageous cut flower & it retains its color when dried (if you dry it upright). Excellent container plant too.
