Product Details

Showy is an understatement when it comes to these bright globes of the summer garden. Not only do they sport bold colors, they add unique texture with their papery blooms. The more you cut, the more they bloom. This colorful blend becomes even more vibrant when pollinators discover it! Flowers last up to 2 weeks in the vase and are perfect for drying. Also known as globe amaranth, the tough plants don't flinch at hot, humid weather or even drought.
