New Red Flowers

As I was strolling through a garden center last week I spotted this flower I had never seen before.  It is an annual but I love it.

The name is Amaranthus and it is ideal for backgrounds, it grows 18 to 24" tall.





My coneflowers are blooming nicely this week also.



Linking with Rednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.

Oh! I love your Amaranthus, I've never seen one before. Thank you so much for introducing it to me. I adore cone flowers and keep meaning to get some - butterflies love them, I think?

Happy Rednesday!

What a lovely blog!

I missed ABC Wednesday (you have already moved on..;) but my father used to be stationed at Ft Leavenworth and Ft Leonardwood, and we would go to KC to see the Christmas lights. I think it was Overland Park? I didn't know about the tunnels!

Cone flowers are sooo my favorite. Just love them. I need to plant some.
I didn't know about this new one, either. Very pretty.

The Amaranthus is fun. Love finding a new plant.

I will have to visit the nursery and look for this amaranthus. I have never heard of it before. I must add one to my garden.
