Gomphrena globosa—commonly known as Globe Amaranth—is a semi-compact annual that's best known for its magenta, flower-like bracts that are incredibly well suited for drying and preservation. 

These bracts provide gorgeous color to your garden from summer through fall, and are known to retain their unique colors even after they are dried (everlasting). They're also especially eye-catching and long-lasting freshly cut flowers

This particular cultivar, 'Raspberry Cream', is known for producing beautiful bracts consisting of shades of whitish pinks throughout, with yellow accents.

    Great size, Packaged well

    Thanks for your review!

    Excellent quality

    I have ordered plants from a number of different online retailers with varying degrees of success. Almanac’s plants arrived healthy and well packaged. I have not replanted them yet - letting them rest first - but they look happy and perfect. I will be ordering from Almanac again!

    Thanks for your review, Rochelle!
