ROSE Pink Globe Amaranth ,FLOWERS SEED
Gomphrena (Gomphrena Globosa Rose) - This rose colored Globe Amaranth has a brilliantly colored bloom about an inch wide and shaped something like a very fat strawberry. It grows on stiff stems which make it an ideal cutting flower. Grow Gomphrena from flower seed and enjoy a fully-blooming plant with a sea of eye-catching rose blooms nestled on top the stems. Grow it alongside other Globe Amaranth plants with various colors. We carry purple, rose, salmon, and white so you can have a colorful display and all easily grown from flower seed.
Gophrena plants are used in annual beds and borders. In mass plantings, the round flower heads produce an interesting texture, and their bright colors last late into the season. Their low stature makes them well suited for edging around taller plantings. Globe Amaranth is often grown in containers on the porch or deck.
Plant Gomphrena Globosa seeds either indoors, several weeks before the last frost is expected, or directly outdoors when the temperatures have warmed. If sowing Gomphrena seed indoors, transplant the seedlings to the sunny garden spot when they are several inches tall. If growing Globe Amaranth from flower seeds specifically for cutting, space the plants closer together to force the growth of longer .
