New! Excellent lavender-pink gomphrena for cut flowers.
We've found Audray Pink and Audray White to be some of the tallest and most upright varieties in the Gomphrena globosa type, resulting in a higher number of usable stems. Highly uniform plant performance. Despite the name, the bloom color of Audray Pink has more of a lavender or cool pink hue. 1 1/2" blooms. Compared to the QIS series, Audray is taller and more uniform but a bit later to flower, and with a limited color range. Also known as globe amaranth and common globe amaranth. Ht. 18–28".
