Globe Amaranth

~200 seeds/g.

Annual. Beautiful round clover-like 1" flowers on 2' stems perfect for drying. Also enjoyable as bedding plant. We’ve chosen for earliness, floriferousness, compact habit and good stem length.

Culture: Easily grown in any soil, likes hot sun, blooms prolifically. Tolerates dry weather and some frost. Chill seed 4–6 weeks at 40°, then start indoors at 60–70° for best germination. Germination is erratic; can take from 7–30 days. Grow on at 55–60°. Do not overwater. Transplant in 8–12 weeks, spacing at 12–18".
