Amaranthus caudatus 'Viridis' has long, soft tassels of pale, fresh acid-green. One of my favourites.
This makes one of the best upper level foliage plants for an elegant, mixed arrangement. Perfect for mixing with dahlias and sunflowers, or arranging in a large vase on its own.

Amaranthus caudatus 'Viridis' reviews
Amaranthus caudatas "Viridis"
Reviewed 16th November 2014 by g macgregor
Grew in a seed tray in un-heated greenhouse in spring. Transplanted into pots in late spring and then final position in late June. Took off after a couple of weeks and lasted until mid autumn. Surprisingly large plant (given the size of the seedlings) and beautifully arching. Particularly effective in front of white hydrangeas under a lime walk I started three years ago. Also planted en masse in another bed with euphorbia. Kept the weeds down in what has been a troublesome flower bed. will grow again next year.
