Amaranthus caudatus Red is a statuesque plant for the garden with its large leaves and an unusual cut flower that lasts well in a vase.
Amaranthus caudatus Red adds a touch of elegance to flower arrangements with tassels of crimson colour dangling downwards. It is an invaluable colourful foliage plant as it complements rich bold colour schemes and adds elegance to softer more country cottage style arrangements. The flowers have a textural quality that makes you want to touch them!
