Description / Love-Lies-Bleeding Red Amaranthus Seeds

Your grandmother probably grew this splendid Love-Lies-Bleeding in her annual bed, and we are delighted to be able to offer this heirloom seed once again to American gardens. All summer long (and sometimes even into fall) you'll be regaled with bold, blood-red blooms that "drip" in weeping stems up to 2 feet long. Terrific for fresh and dried arrangements, this Amaranthus is a conversation piece and a fine source of vertical texture for your sunny annual bed or border.

The flowers really stand out in long, slender, utterly prostrate 18- to 24-inch stems. They make fine additions to large arrangements, either as background color or bold front-and-center accents. And if you dry them, you can enjoy them all winter long as Everlastings. There is even a rare green variety, also an heirloom, that makes the perfect companion planting.

The plant grows quickly and easily in any well-drained soil receiving full sunshine. Expect it to reach anywhere from 3 to 5 feet tall and 18 to 30 inches wide. Love-Lies-Bleeding is a fine companion to other annuals from zinnia to pentas.

Attention-getting even from across the garden, Love-Lies-Bleeding is a must-have for cut flower lovers and annual gardeners alike. Find out just how easy it is to grow and impossible not to love.

Our flowers on one plant 4 1/2' long.
Review by Jeff.
I purchase very few annuals. The heritage plants are my exceptions. The size this plant grows to in one season is astounding. Only negative is we have to spray ours regularly with Seven to stop invisible insects from cutting many holes in all of the leaves. We had the same issue with another Armancanthus, the variegated leaf one. It was a little more stubborn to grow to full size. It's cousin shielded it from the light too much. In combination they will be quite a show next year.
