When Jefferson noted "Amaranths" on an undated manuscript of garden flowers, he was probably referring to the love-lies-bleeding, a curious summer annual cultivated by the earliest American flower gardeners. Its common name suggests the unusual, cascading red flowers that droop almost to the ground during the summer. Sow the seed after the last spring frost in a sunny, warm site, then thin the seedlings so they are four feet apart. The plants will grow to four or five feet in height.
Approximately 70-80 seeds per pack.
