Sahara Sunset Collection

I’m so pleased that the amaranth family are having a renaissance and are very fashionable. Combined here with phlox, rudbeckia and a late sowing of calendula, this makes a gentle but sophisticated cut-and-come-again combination.

Description

I’m so pleased that the amaranth family are having a renaissance and are very fashionable. Every cutting garden or small, intensive cut flower patch I visited last summer had amaranth as their late summer and autumn crowning glory. Combined here with long and late performers, phlox, rudbeckia and a late sowing of Calendula ‘Sunset Buff’, this makes a gentle but sophisticated cut-and-come-again combination.

Care Tips

Sow seed indoors in spring with some warmth. Plant should be kept in a frost free place until they can be hardened off and planted outside when all danger of frost has passed. NB zinnias hate disturbance and cold nights so do not sow too early.
