Amaranthus ‘Red Tails,’ a fast-growing marvel that will add a touch of elegance to your garden. This amaranth variety boasts incredibly long, drooping spikes adorned with countless tiny deep red blooms, resembling chenille or pipe cleaners. In the Portland Metro area, it typically reaches heights of three to five feet, but in hotter climates, it has been known to soar to six feet or more. The striking red tails create a stunning contrast against the somewhat coarse green foliage, making them irresistible to birds, bees, and butterflies. While amaranth tends to reseed, it is an annual plant, and its striking flower spikes can be used both fresh and dried. Commonly known as Amaranthus, Prince’s Feather, or Love Lies Bleeding, this botanical wonder will grace your garden with its beauty throughout the summer and autumn seasons. Expect a vase life of 7 to 10 days, and store these ethylene-sensitive beauties at temperatures between 36 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit.
