Friday Flowers: Amaranthus

There’s nothing more show-stopping than bold and dramatic flowers, don’t you think? Amaranthus adds texture to an arrangement and when used in a bouquet, it’s hanging stems can give it a cascading feel. It comes in both a rich fuchsia and a bright green, and will make even the smallest boutonniere or the largest ceremony arch unique!
