500 Seeds - Amaranthus Perfecta Seeds Tall Yellow And Red Bright Foliage Plant
If you buy this Amaranthus flower seed, you can grow the perfect plant for the back of the border display or grow it among ornamental grasses. The striking yellow and red bright foliage and tall, upright habit of this brilliant Summer Poinsettia make it a garden standout even in the back of the border! The upper third of the foliage is an intense display of red and yellow. Each Amaranthus plant is unique in its coloring, so plan on having several!
Amaranthus Perfecta is a somewhat narrow, column-shaped plant that reaches 36 inches tall and just 12 - 18 inches wide in the sunny garden.
It is not afraid of damp soils and is a superb choice for waterside plantings. Few sights are as stunning as an Amaranthus flower garden which are all easily grown from flower seeds. Try combining Perfecta with yellow-leaved Illumination or Molten Fire.
Start the Amaranthus seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last expected frost. For areas with long growing seasons, Amaranthus seeds can be directly started outdoors in a prepared seedbed after danger of frost has passed. It is no wonder that Amaranthus Perfecta is called a Summer Poinsettia plant! The colors are intense and so eye-catching!
