One of the earliest varieties to flower, this abundant bloomer makes a wonderful addition to bouquets. Its petite 2 inch glowing bronze button-shaped blooms make great cuts. ‘Amber Queen’ is a real garden workhorse.
Flower Type: Pom
Site: Full Sun
Days to Maturity: 80-100 days

Cut when blooms are three-quarters of the way open, but not overly ripe. To do this, check the back of each flower head, looking for firm and lush petals versus papery or slightly dehydrated ones. Place into water with hydrator, or sear stem ends by placing into 160-180* water and allow to cool for 1 hour. Blooms will last 5-6 days.
