Global Roadside Attraction


The name says “prostrate” but soft flower heads greet passing wanderers on roadside footpaths and other trails. Globe amaranth is, they say, “a cosmopolitan pioneer plant of disturbed areas.”

The description at states, “…a cosmopolitan pioneer plant of disturbed areas,” and that’s where we found this Gomphrena celosioides. To us, it is a gentle, cool touch underfoot on roadside footpaths, but champions of grass lawns will want to keep it out of their domestic picture, with its spreading habit and sturdy taproots.

Prostrate globe amaranth originally hailed from southern parts of the New World, but now is well on its way to fulfilling the prophecy embedded in its name.
