Unmistakable long fluffy tails hang down from tall lush leafy plants. Relatives of this plant are edible and used in a number of health foods; wild birds certainly enjoy the tasty seedhead snack.

Amaranthus caudatus - love lies bleeding

DESCRIPTION: Tall annual/biennial, bushy with large soft leaves. Flowers are long trailing tassels in deep red.
PLANTING: Sow seeds direct in spring to early summer in their final position. Scatter over soil, rake in gently, keep moist. Plant in free draining rich, moist soil in sun for best flowers. Preparing garden beds with well composted manure will give the best results. Cut flowers and hang to dry for use in flower arrangements; cut seedheads to feed the birds in winter.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser.
