Strawberry Fields Gomphrena

A real highlight of our trials, this very refined gomphrena is a rich strawberry red. The two-foot-tall plants bloom throughout the summer. Creates a wonderful garden display. The abundance of bloom is also a delight for fresh or dried flower arrangments and wreath making.

Beautiful Red

These are the most beautiful red color I've ever seen! They always germinate easily and fill the garden with color. They are so easy to grow and don't care about the quality of the dirt they're in. A staple in my garden every year.

Strawberry Fields- Zone 4

I am in zone 4 for planting. Had good germination indoors. Transplanted well. These are just a cool, unique looking flower to add to your garden. In my experience with this flower, it can tolerate a wide variety of temperatures.

Gomphrena - Strawberry Fields.

The seeds germinated very well indoors under lights; I haven't transplanted them yet but DO have them outside hardening off. I will probably transplant them on Memorial Day.
