Amaranthus ‘Emerald Tassels’
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.
