Amaranthus ‘Coral Fountain’
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.
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.
