Gomphrena flaccida ‘Pink Gem’

Pink Gem is a decorative annual flowering plant, with masses of lovely globe shaped bright pink flowers that are long lasting. The plant is rounded and mound shaped with green foliage, and looks great in containers or massed in the garden. Best in an open position in full sun, in a well drained soil, and likes some watering to be at its best. Attracts butterflies and bees, and the flowers remain for months on the plant, and are good for cut flowers.
