Amaranth Coral Fountain
Amaranth 'Coral Fountain'
I discovered this incredibly unique amaranth during a variety trial some years back and fell madly in love with it. The pendulous, tassel-like blooms are the most exquisite shade of dusty pink that resembles sun faded velvet. ‘Coral Fountain’ is perfect for dramatic, large scale arrangements.
Plant type: annual
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75-90 days
Plant spacing: 12”
Pinch: when 12” tall
Approx seeds per packet: 100
How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Amaranth can also be direct seeded into the garden once all danger of frost has passed.
Harvest when the tassels begin to elongate and remove most of the foliage so the colorful ropes are more visible. A vase life of 7-10 days can be expected.
