The Palette of Amaranthus

Amaranthus flowers, also known as "love-lies-bleeding" or "tassel flower," boast a diverse palette that adds depth and drama to any floral arrangement. Moxie Blooms offers a curated selection of Amaranthus varieties, ranging from deep burgundy and vibrant red to delicate shades of tan and green. The cascading, tassel-like blooms create a mesmerizing visual effect, making Amaranthus a captivating choice for those seeking a touch of uniqueness and sophistication in their DIY flower arrangements.

Hardiness and Durability

Moxie Blooms' Amaranthus flowers are celebrated not only for their aesthetic appeal but also for their impressive hardiness. Sourced directly from trusted farms, these blooms are carefully cultivated to withstand various environmental conditions, ensuring that they arrive at your doorstep looking fresh and vibrant. The hardiness of Amaranthus makes them an excellent choice for both novice and experienced floral enthusiasts, allowing for the creation of arrangements that last throughout your event.

Versatility in Floral Bouquets and Centerpieces

Amaranthus flowers are renowned for their versatility, adding a touch of drama and texture to floral bouquets and centerpieces. The long, trailing stems make them ideal for creating cascading arrangements, while the vibrant colors and unique form can serve as a focal point or complement other blooms seamlessly. Whether used in combination with classic roses, elegant lilies, or exotic orchids, Amaranthus flowers bring an artistic and dynamic element to any floral composition.

The Allure of Amaranthus Characteristics

The distinctive characteristics of Amaranthus flowers contribute to their timeless allure. The tassel-like blooms, which can range from gracefully hanging to upright plumes, create a sense of movement and fluidity in arrangements. The long, arching stems add height and structure, allowing for the creation of visually striking centerpieces. Whether you choose the dramatic, pendant-like form or the upright plumes, Amaranthus flowers are sure to leave a lasting impression on any event or celebration.

Significance in Floral Design

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, Amaranthus flowers hold symbolic significance in the language of flowers. The name "love-lies-bleeding" suggests themes of enduring love and fidelity, making these blooms a meaningful choice for weddings and romantic occasions. Additionally, the graceful movement of the tassel-like blooms can symbolize flexibility and adaptability, adding layers of meaning to your floral arrangements.

Caring for Amaranthus flowers is essential to ensure they stay fresh and vibrant throughout your DIY event. These unique and graceful blooms require a bit of attention to detail, but with the right care, you can create stunning arrangements that will captivate your guests. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to care for Amaranthus flowers:

  1. Receiving and Unpacking:
  • Upon receiving your Amaranthus flowers from Moxie Blooms, carefully unpack them as soon as possible.
  • Trim the stems at a 45-degree angle using clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears. This helps create a larger surface area for water absorption.
  1. Watering:
  • Place the Amaranthus stems in a clean vase filled with fresh, lukewarm water.
  • Ensure that at least the bottom third to half of the stems is submerged in water. Amaranthus flowers are thirsty and can drink a significant amount of water.
  1. Remove Excess Foliage:
  • Remove any foliage or stems that will be submerged in water. This prevents the growth of bacteria, keeping the water clean and the flowers healthy. Amaranthus foliage is typically pretty chewy and not the prettiest part of the flower.  We usually cut most of it away from the beautiful trailing blooms.
  1. Change the Water:
  • Change the water in the vase every 1-2 days. This prevents the water from becoming stagnant and ensures that your Amaranthus flowers stay hydrated.
  1. Flower Food:
  • If provided, use the flower food included with your Amaranthus flowers. Follow the instructions on the packet to give your blooms the necessary nutrients for extended freshness.
  1. Temperature Consideration:
  • Keep your Amaranthus flowers in a cool location, away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat sources. Avoid placing them near appliances or heating vents.
  1. Arranging:
  • Amaranthus flowers are known for their cascading, tassel-like blooms, making them ideal for arrangements with a vertical or cascading design.
  • Combine Amaranthus with other flowers or greenery to create a balanced and visually appealing arrangement.
  1. Mist the Blooms:
  • Amaranthus flowers appreciate a bit of humidity. Lightly misting the blooms with water can help maintain their freshness and prevent dehydration, especially if the air is dry.
  1. Regular Pruning:
  • Trim any discolored or damaged stems to keep the arrangement looking fresh.
  1. Handling with Care:
  • Amaranthus stems are delicate, so handle them with care to avoid breakage. Support the stems while arranging to prevent bending or damage.
  1. Consider the Design:
  • Since Amaranthus flowers have a unique form, consider their length and texture when designing your arrangements. They can be used to create dramatic focal points or add texture to softer blooms.
  1. Storage:
  • If you need to store your Amaranthus flowers before the event, keep them in a cool, dark place. Re-cut the stems before placing them in water again.

By following these care tips, you can ensure that your Amaranthus flowers from Moxie Blooms remain exquisite and contribute to the overall beauty of your DIY event. With proper care, these unique blooms will continue to enchant and delight throughout the duration of your celebration.  For more guidance watch our Flower Prep 101 video!
