Description

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.

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.
