Culinary Uses:
While primarily grown for its ornamental value, QIS Orange Gomphrena flowers are edible and can be used to add a unique touch to culinary creations. The flowers have a mild, slightly tangy flavor, making them suitable for garnishing salads, desserts, and cocktails. They can also be candied or used to infuse syrups and vinegars. When harvesting flowers for culinary use, select those that are fully open and free from pesticides or chemicals.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
QIS Orange Gomphrena thrives in warm climates and well-drained soil. Plant seeds directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed, or start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date. Sow seeds shallowly, as they require light to germinate. Once seedlings have emerged and temperatures have warmed, transplant them into the garden, spacing them 8-12 inches apart. Water regularly, especially during periods of drought, and provide a layer of mulch to help retain moisture. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming throughout the growing season.
