Amaranthus ‘Coral Fountain’

Amaranthus caudatus

I love the long tails of Amaranthus caudatus!

It is a late Summer staple for us because of these dramatic tassels that produce bucket-loads of flowers.

I’ve fallen in love with Amaranthus ‘Coral Fountain’ because it just ‘goes’ with everything!

For the gardener this is a handsome plant grows well in full sun and looks great in the vegetable garden too!

We’ve supersized out packets with a generous 1/4 teaspoon of this tiny seed in every pack!

Variety: Amaranthus caudatus
Type: Half Hardy Annual
Position: Full sun in free draining soil.
Sow: Spring
Germination: Up to 30 days
Harvest: Summer until the frosts

Cutting /Vase Life:
Cut once tassels begin to elongate and remove most of the foliage to prevent wilting.

Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water. We rest our stems for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
