Organic Love Lies Bleeding Amaranth
60 days to flower | Amaranthus cruentus
HEIRLOOM Vibrant cascades of deep magenta seedheads topple six feet to the ground below and friends, don’t be daunted, Love Lies Bleeding is just so easy to grow. She seems to thrive in any soil and needs no trellis. If you’re looking for any easy flower to grow that blossoms for a long time, amaranths and cosmos are a dream come true. She’s glorious both fresh and dry in bouquets as well as for our friend’s chickens to enjoy when she sets seed! Amaranth is also a delectably quick-growing microgreen.
If you’re growing amaranth as a cut flower, sow several successions through early July for consistent harvest through frost.
At Fruition, we sow amaranth indoors in soil blocks four weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost.
