Though Truffula Pink globe amaranth does grow well in large containers, where it really shines is in the landscape. There, it will have plenty of room to reach its full potential and will nicely fill in an area in short order. It makes a welcome addition to garden beds, borders and cutting gardens.
Since this plant blooms continuously all season, it can be dotted along the length of a garden bed where its hot pink color will tie everything together into one cohesive design. Since it matures to 22 to 28” tall, make sure the plants you grow behind it are at least two feet tall so they don’t get covered up. Similarly, you could plant a row of Truffula Pink behind a short evergreen hedge to provide a long-lasting pop of color.
Truffula Pink can also be used for a seasonlong supply of cut flowers. The clipped plants will quickly fill back in, keeping fresh flowers coming all the way until frost.
