It is not too late to plant some summer flowers and foliage plants from seed. I am always surprised that more people don’t plant Amaranthus Joseph’s Coat as it is very easy to grow from seed, likes the sun, grows fast, and gives great color in late summer and fall. It is the leaves that provide the color and they can be red, yellow, cream, burgundy and a combination of all. We had some friends that had a container of these plants by their entry way last year and the color was spectacular. For some reason, the 4-inch potted plants at garden centers often do not look so good, so I think growing from seed is best.
