globe amaranth

Gomphrena globosa, Glove amaranth

Though I know there are many colors like white, red and purple,
I bought this one ,because I loved its lovely pink.
The flowers were perfectly round for the first, and it gradually grew long.
The yellow parts might be stamens that are producing the next new seeds.
I've heard that it can keep the color after being dried.

Language of the flower.     Everlasting love
