Fuzzy erect spikes or drooping tassels composed of very small green or red dried flowers.

Annual Herb

Common Name(s) Love-lies-bleeeding, Tassel flower
Height 24 - 48 inches.
Propagation Sow directly after soil wars as seedlings are difficult to transplant.
Cultivation Full sun in well-fertilized soil.
Harvest Cut amaranth when in full bloom and flowers are firm to the touch.
Drying Hang amaranth upside down in dry, dark, open, airy place.
Uses The erect form of amaranth is a nice dried flower accent while the tassel form can be quite dramatic.
Not to be confused with the dried flower globe amaranth (gomphrena) which is a different genus.
