This never fading flower ( Greek translation) also referred to as ” The Summer Pointsetta” or “Amaranth” may not have stuck you as ” the pretty flower” but you can always recognize it in an arrangement. It is usually cascading around the floral centerpiece or bouquet and range in hues from purple to gold and my favorite… greens.
For me, the Amaranthus as one of my top choices for “filler foliage”. By simply adding a few Amaranth you can instantly take your arrangement up a few notches on the floral pole. For instance, take a bouquet of black magic red roses. You would consider that to be beautiful right? Now add some hanging Amaranthus and your beautiful bouquet is now exotic…just like that.
