I love Gomph's! They last so long in the garden, Lovey dubby and you can use them for dried arrangements. That color is fetching too!

I was hoping they were perennial (I always have to look up the spelling! Rolling my eyes. ), but they're an annual.
But still blooming after at least a month.
I've been saving the seeds, though not sure how viable they are.
Will try to get them to establish. Smiling

BTW, I got them at Home Depot.

Just bought seeds at Amazon for a purple & white mix Outsidepride Globe Amaranth 1000 Seeds, and Outsidepride Yellow Craspedia Globosa Billy Button or Drumstick 1000 Seeds. Should make a nice combo. Thumbs up

Lovely banner. I can personally attest that, as @slowcala says, these make great dried flowers. They mix well in the garden, and dried, with celosia, too.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, Cal.

Thanks, Evelyn! Was just thinking of you today, and hoping you had
a Happy Birthday! (or is it coming up?), and are warm & snug up
there in the high country of Northern California. Thumbs up

Haha, Cal! Don't remind me that I turned 81! Rolling on the floor laughing It's almost too much to bear. Hilarious!
