Gomphrena or Globe Amaranth, is one of the most easily grown annuals from seed.  It has been a favorite dried flower for centuries because it retains its color even after drying.  Because of this, the ancient Greeks considered gomphrena a symbol of immortality and later, a symbol of lasting friendship and the Victorians gave gomphrena the name "Live Forever".  Gomphrenas make wonderful bedding plants, providing a carefree show of color from spring to frost and the dried blooms can be used to create lovely dried arrangements, wreaths or candle rings.
