Amaranthus, Summer Poinsettia Mix is rated out of 5 by 2.Rated 5 out of 5 by Linny from Show stopper We've had amaranthus before but this variety is a real show stopper! People driving by or walking by have to stop and admire the plants. We started the seeds in our small green house. They were easy to grow and seem to like the hot, humid weather here along the Chesapeake bay. And, they are gorgeous!Date published: 2015-06-20Rated 3 out of 5 by Phatcat from Summer Poinsettia mix I winter sowed these seeds. While it took them longer to germinate than other plants, they finally came thru, but lingered behind all the others. After gently transplanting them into their beds, they didn't take off. Its Aug and although they are pretty, they are short and blooms are suppressed. LOVE the color! Next year I will direct sow and plant in the back of the border hoping that they earn their reputation.Date published: 2013-08-07
