This flower originally comes from Mexico. Amaranthus is also known as Amaranthus hypochondriacus, Foxtail Amaranth or Prince of Wales Feather. In Africa, amaranth is even used as food. Young leaves are used like spinach, the seed is first eaten raw or cooked.
These stems are ideal for autumn and winter bouquets and offer structure and impact as well as beautiful natural subtle colours, which combine beautifully with other natural dried flowers such as Helichrysu, Love-in-a-Mist or Barley (Hordeum). Amaranthus does not require any specific maintenance and lasts a long time. Our Amaranthus is sown, grown and harvested in the Netherlands.
