Formula Mix Gomphrena Seeds, Globe Amaranth in Mixed Colors
Formula Mix Gomphrena is one of my favorite annuals for the summer garden. Also known as Globe Amaranth, the colored flower balls are great for informal cut flower arrangements. Formula Mix Gomphrena blooms in shades of pink, white, lavender, and dark purple. The plants have an airy quality which makes them a great weaver among perennials and other plants. Globe amaranth will form a low clump of fuzzy green foliage. In early summer the flowers will appear held up on sturdy, wiry stems. The plants can grow up to 2 feet when in bloom. The dark pink flowers do not fade in the summer heat like many annuals. This plant is great for dry areas and is very drought tolerant once established. The late season migrating hummingbirds really loved the flowers!
Gomphrena will grow and bloom best in full sun and well drained soil. Plants will bloom until the first frost. Flowers can be cut and used in fresh or dried floral arrangements.
Each seed packet contains at least 25 seeds. All seed orders come with complete growing instructions. Seeds are fresh from this year's crop. All seeds are cleaned by hand and small natural bits of chaff may be present.
