No sunny annual bed is complete without Globe Amaranth, and you’ll love the brilliant plum coloring, abundant blooms, and superior heat tolerance of Las Vegas Mix. Butterflies and hummingbirds flock to these big, full flowers bobbing atop slender stems, and you will adore cutting the stems for fresh and dried bouquets. Easy and so delightful, Las Vegas will surely become one of your favorites!
These flowers are very full, packed with florets of rich, inky plum-purple, pale pink, or snowy white. They last a long time, look great in the sunny garden, and keep coming all summer long.
Expect Las Vegas to reach about 18 inches high and to spread 18 to 24 inches wide in the garden. Though very versatile when it comes to soil type, this Globe Amaranth needs good drainage, and does best in reasonably fertile garden soil or potting mix. (It is a lovely container choice!) Plant it among your Marigolds and Petunias, Angelonias and Celosias, for a nice contrast in shape and texture. Perfect for large drifts in the meadow garden, too!
