amaranthus dried flowers

Amaranthus viridis hanging down on the drying rack. This is the green version of the well-known Love Lies Bleeding. Both the green and the red are indispensable in dried flower arrangements with long inflorescences hanging down in stunning cascades. The individual flowers are small, a couple of millimetres at most, but when clustered together they are a sight to behold.
