A very beautiful flower in the same family as Amaranth and quite similar in appearance. As the romantic name suggests the flowers literally droop or bleed pointing down with deep red colour and fuzzy texture. Very nice cut flower and also great to attract beneficial insects.
Sow in Spring into trays. Prick out to 4cm diagonal spacing when true leaves appear. Transplant into fertile soil at 30cm diagonal spacing with chance of frost has passed.
