Featured Flowers: Dramatic Black Amaranthus

Amaranthus is best known as "Love Lies Bleeding" because of its long, trailing tassels. The stems can grow to be 3-4 feet tall, adding dramatic height to the forlorn love metaphor, but don't let the poetic name deter you from embracing this flower.

Though fresh Amaranthus is typically a crimson color, we love this Jet Black, dyed and preserved bunch for fall and winter decorating. 

This showy and exotic bunch, with its long, rope-like flowers, is ideal for cascading gestures in arrangements or breathtaking tassels in installations such as wedding arches. The regal black color only adds to the flower's dramatic structure.

You'll find this bunch and more in our Flowers collection online, or visit the shop soon for more dried and preserved inspiration.
