Gomphrena decumbens 'Little Grapes'

Gomphrena decumbens 'Little Grapes'
Newly purchased plant

Common name globe amaranth; airy bachelor's buttons
Family amaranthaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z8b-11)
Flowers purple
Size 36"
Light sun-part shade

Tiny bright-purple flowers by the hundreds, carried on a mess of wiry stems above mid-green pointy-tipped leaves. Reports of its hardiness vary from zone 8 to zone 9b; since it has reportedly lived for many years in a garden right around here, where the harshest winters dip to zone 8, I have high hopes of it surviving for me, too.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: right fence border
