This Green Thumb Amaranthus is suitable for flower beds and does well in borders. The apple-green color goes well with most other colors and is therefore a useful plant for filling in gaps in borders. It also is suitable for cutting and works well in arrangements. Green Thumb is a hardy annual, and it makes an excellent bedding plant. It prefers a sunny dry spot with well-drained soil. Sow Amaranthus seeds after frost season is over and night time temperatures are staying in the upper 40's.
