Gomphrena ‘Truffula Pink’
Gomphrena Truffula Pink-I have BEAUTY and BRAWN. Truffula™ Gomphrena has a perfectly-balanced habit that shows off a plethora of hot-pink flowers. It has performed very well in hot, humid climates where it blooms all season long. It is an ideal cut-flower with long vase life. Continuous Bloom or Rebloomer Long Blooming Heat Tolerant Deadheading Not Necessary Drought Tolerant Attracts: Bees Butterflies CHARACTERISTICS Garden Height: 22 - 28 Inches Spacing: 12 - 18 Inches Spread: 22 - 26 Inches Flower Colors: Pink Habit: Mounded PLANT NEEDS Light Requirement: Sun Maintenance Category: Easy Bloom Time: Planting To Hard Frost Uses: Border Plant Container Cut Flower Dried Flower Landscape What I like about this beauty is she is tough and durable. She is easy to care for. This is a large plant, be sure to allow sufficient elbow room for it to grow. She does not need to be deadheaded, in fact, as the flowers age they continue to have great presence on the plant. She is well branched and will tend to keep mounding up on itself. if you do happen to see it split, she will quickly branch and fill in any open spaces. Like Diamond Frost this is a great plant for that spot where the hose just doesn't reach. Great for use in large containers and combinations as well as in landscapes. This a tough and durable annual and would be an ideal plant to hide unsightly blight, such as an electric meter. Can be used as dried and cut flowers as well.
