Gomphrena, commonly known as Globe Amaranth, belongs to the Amaranth family and are often grown as annual bedding plants. These are a delightful addition to the garden, with small globular flowerheads that resemble clover flowers. Generally easy to grow and low-maintenance, plants thrive in hot, dry weather. Under the right conditions, Gomphrena are long blooming — they continually flower from early summer until first frost.
