Plant of the Week 01/22/2021
Ping Pong ® Globe Amaranth Gomphrena Globosa Zone 10-11
This annual plant not only looks nice in pots but can be dried and used for indoor arrangements once the growing season is over! Lavender-purple colored flowers that resemble raspberries are lifted up by long stems with minimal vegetation. Blooms will appear in summer.
Plant in full sun and water regularly for best growth. A moderate grower that can reach 20" tall and wide. Prefers well-drained soil. Can be planted in the ground but will need to be replanted every year since this plant will not winter over. Attracts butterflies.
