I'm interested in obtaining seeds for "Love-Lies-Bleeding". I brought seeds back from England and would like some for next year. The plant grew to height of 6'5" with long dangly tassles. I don't know horticultural name unless it is a form of Amaranth. Can you help me with obtaining seeds without sending to England?"

You're correct, 'Love-Lies-Bleeding' is a form of amaranth. The botanical name is Amaranthus caudatus, and seeds are available through the Burpee catalog, either online at: http://www.burpee.com, or toll-free at (800) 888-1447.
