Amaranthus caudatus
“Love-Lies-A-Bleeding"

AMaranthus caudatus "Love-Lies-A-Bleeding" Amaranthus caudatus "Love-Lies-A-BLeeding"



SO fast and easy to grow, who doesn’t love this glittering heirloom, grown as an ornamental since the 1600s? If you give it lots of room to shine in the garden or pop it in a big 2' x 2' pot with plenty of compost, it’s a wondrous and long blooming spectacle of awesomeness sure to bring praise from even the most garden-indifferent person in your life! Lush, large & tropical lime green leaves are a perfect backdrop for the fascinating tassels of chenille-ruby blooms to 16" long. Reaches full height in 30 days & blooms for months. Crazy cut flowers! Self sows!
