Globe amaranth (mix) - Gomphrena globosa L.
Spectacular in winter bouquets, perfectly retains color!
Highly branched, compact gomphrena bushes in Estonian conditions do not exceed 30-35 cm, although in the southern regions it can grow up to 60 cm. The diameter of the inflorescence is 3-4 cm.
The heat-loving drought-resistant letnik is valued for its original inflorescences with a diameter of 3-4 cm, purple, pink, salmon and white. Belongs to the group of dried flowers. Dried inflorescences retain their color and shape well, look spectacular in winter bouquets.
Gomphrena will wonderfully decorate sunny flower beds, borders, borders. A great place for her is an alpine hill. It is also suitable for the role of a potted plant on a sunny balcony and windowsill. Do not get carried away with top dressing, because gomphrena needs them only at the seedling stage: an excess of fertilizer leads to an increase in the vegetative mass to the detriment of flowering. Place gomphrena on light, well-drained, poor soils that are neutral in acidity.
Sowing seeds for seedlings in March. Seedlings appear after 2 weeks. After about 2 weeks, the seedlings dive into separate pots. Seedlings are planted in open ground in early June, in increments of 25-30 cm.
