Amaranthus ‘Emerald Tassels’

Amaranthus ‘Emerald Tassels’

Love-lies-bleeding

The most effective way I’ve grown this was as a backdrop to lime green Zinnias and a greenish white sunflower. In good soil it will grow 160cm tall by 80cm wide. The long green tassels are produced from mid-summer until late autumn.

 

When to sow: Late spring

Where to sow: Direct sow

Depth to sow: 5mm Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.

Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.

Spacing: Between plants: 15cm-90cm Between rows: 90cm

 

Directions: If growing for cut flowers make a shallow drill and place three or four seed every 15cm apart thinning to one seedling after germination. For a long flowering garden subject plant a few seeds 50 to 90cm apart. After germination thin to one seedling.
