Gomphrena globosa 'Strawberry Fields'

Globe Amaranth, Bachelor's Button

The small, ball-shaped, papery flowers bloom nonstop in colors that include red, pink, lavender, white and orange. Use in edging, in beds or containers. Excellent cut flowers for fresh and dried arrangements. Varieties growing 2 to 3 feet tall are better for cutting. Dwarf varieties, from 10 to 12 inches tall, form low, mounding plants. Plants thrive in heat and full sun. Water moderately, and avoid overwatering. To harvest for drying, pick when flowers are fully open, then hang upside down in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
