No sunny annual bed is complete without Gomphrena Las Vegas Mix also known as globe amaranth, and you'll love the brilliant plum colouring, abundant blooms, and superior heat tolerance of Las Vegas mix. Butterflies and birds flock to these big, full flowers bobbing atop slender stems, and you will adore cutting the stems for fresh and dried bouquets. Easy and so delightful, Las Vegas will surely become one of your favourites. These flowers are very full, packed with florets of rich, inky plum purple, pale pink, or snowy white. They last a long time, look great in the sunny garden, and keep coming all summer long. Expect Las Vegas to reach about 45cm high and to spread 45-60cm wide in the garden. Though very versatile when it comes to soil type, this globe amaranth needs good drainage, and does best in reasonably fertile garden soil or potting mix. (It is a lovely container choice.) Plant it among your marigolds and petunias, angelonias and celosias, for a nice contrast in shape and texture. One of the best things about gomphrena is its quickness. You'll go from sowing to seeing blooms in less than 3 months in most cases, and few seeds are easier.
