Grow sultry amaranth flowers for rich, long-lasting bouquets in fall
Plant & tend
Sow seeds in full sun or part shade in early summer, once the soil has warmed up. Give plants room to grow, since sizes can range from 5 feet tall (‘Hot Biscuits’) to 8 feet tall (common love-lies-bleeding). Water regularly to keep soil evenly moist. Many varieties self-sow freely, so you may be blessed with volunteer seedlings next season.
