Product Details

Product Details

The beautiful, companionable colors of three highly floriferous Gomphrenas combine in our trio of Ping Pong favorites. Ball-shaped blossoms in shades of deep amethyst purple, pastel lavender and pure white appear in profusion over a long season adding playful forms and pops of color to mixed borders and containers. Excellent for arrangements, fresh or dried. 3 plants total. Covers approximately 3 sq ft.

We include 1 each of:

  • Gomphrena g. 'Ping Pong Lavender'
  • Gomphrena g. 'Ping Pong Purple'
  • Gomphrena g. 'Ping Pong White'

Gomphrena is a genus of 90 species, mostly annuals, found in a range of habitats in Australia and Central and South America. These multi-stemmed plants produce colorful, Clover-like flower heads that are useful in both fresh-cut bouquets and dried arrangements. Globe Amaranth also makes a good filler with other sun-loving annual bedding plants such as Dahlias, Salvias, and Zinnias.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Ordered 6 Gomphrena for spring planting. What I received were 6 of the tiniest perennials I have ever seen. Four of them had their first pair of leaves only and a tiny single silver strand of root. One plant had four tiny leaves and the sixth plant had no leaves at all, just the soggy remains of a tiny crown. All of them were grown in 3 inch fiber pots that were packed full of sopping wet planting medium. I noted that the markers accompanying the plants stated that they liked to be planted in well drained soil. Since our spring in the Northeast was chilly and wet this year, I kept the plants inside for a few weeks on the kitchen counter with a grow light over them for warmth and several layers of paper towels under them trying to draw out some of the sogginess from the fiber pots. Unfortunately none of them grew, or even survived for more than a few weeks in the kitchen and then subsequently out into a well-drained location. I have been purchasing from White Flower Farm for many years and have never received such poor quality plants. Seedlings that tiny and weak should never have been shipped. Not up to your usual standards WFF!

Cheerful charmers!

Popped these into a border garden two years in a row and could not be happier! They require nothing, the bees love them and they make beautiful dried arrangements that will last all winter. Highly recommend!

I planted these in 2019 and 2020 in different places. Both years they put on a spectacular display until hard frost with minimal care.

Latin Name Pronunciation: gom-free'nuh   

Gomphrena is a genus of 90 species, mostly annuals, found in a range of habitats in Australia and Central and South America. These multi-stemmed plants produce colorful, clover-like flower heads that are useful in both cut bouquets and dried arrangements. If you pinch plants back by ½ on arrival, you'll delay flowering, but the plants will produce more branches and thus more flowers over a longer season.

Light/Watering: Full sun. Although relatively drought tolerant, it's best to water when the top 1in of soil is dry. Water at the soil line to help keep the leaves dry.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Plant in average to dry garden soil that drains well. Use an all-purpose or bloom-boosting fertilizer during the growing season, mixed according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

Pests/Diseases: Provide good air circulation to keep the leaves dry and prevent leaf spot.

Companions: Gomphrena makes a good filler with other sun-loving annual bedding plants such as Dahlias, Salvia, and Zinnias.
