Mardi Gras Parade Globe Amaranth Flower Seeds

Mardi Gras Parade Globe Amaranth Flower Seeds

Multi-Color Clover Form

Amaranth -Mardi Gras Parade - Gomphrena haageana

Annual - The lustrous clover-like blooms of Mardi Gras Parade shine like party decorations on multi-stemmed, upright 1 - 1½' plants. These many petaled, almost iridescent globe-shaped blossoms will light up the garden at midsummer when other summer annuals begin to fade. We've selected a stunning blend of glowing, vibrant red, rich apricot orange, and luminous carmine. Butterflies flock to their shimmery blooms that are easily dried as everlastings for bright pleasure year round.

Soil & Water:Relatively drought tolerant once established. No need for additional amendments. Plant in ordinary well worked soil.

Planting & Growing:To start indoors, sow seeds 1" apart in pots or a container of seed starting mix. Cover lightly and keep moist with a strong light source. To start outdoors, sow seed in full sun in springtime when temperatures are consistently in the 50's. Space tiny seeds as thinly as possible. Cover lightly and keep moist until emerge in 7-10 days.

Harvesting & Storage: Cut flowers for large arrangements. Allow some heads to go to seed for self-sowing or saving.

Planting Depth: 1/4"
Germination: 14-21 Days

Hardy seeds

Its 2014, and this year, with my first indoor growing light setup, I decided to plant some of these seeds from a packet packed for 2003. Its still early, so I can't speak to transplanting or the final product, but after 11 years, not treated, these seeds have done wonderfully. If I don't get them to survive here in Atlanta, that will be on me, I think, not these seeds.
