Product Overview

Amaranthus caudatus

Wine colored tassels cascade from an exotic showy bushy plant. Dramatic in borders or as cut or dried flowers.

The dramatic, crimson tassels of love-lies-bleeding make it a unique plant, with a long history in colonial American and Victorian English gardens. Place up front as a focal point, or in the back of a border. Tassels can reach 18", last for many weeks, and are excellent for fresh or dried flower arrangements. Also called tassel flower.

Variety Info

Each drooping red tassel (up to 18" long) is a colony of tiny, tightly packed flowers against dark green leaves.

Sowing Inside

6 to 8 weeks before your average last frost date. Sow in biodegradable pots that can be directly planted in the ground; roots are sensitive to disturbance.
