AMARANTHUS CAUDATUS VIRIDUS
This spectacular Amaranthus displays stunning tassels of long-lasting lime green flowers from summer through to autumn, slowly fading to cream as they age. The large leaves and sturdy stems on this half-hardy annual provide a strong framework through which the long panicles of flowers will cascade to a most dramatic effect. The plant will need to be watered well in dry weather, and can be encouraged to grow to 3 or 4 feet with careful feeding and support.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
