Gomphrena globosa, commonly known as globe amaranth or bachelor button, is an annual plant that grows up to 24 inches in height. The true species has magenta bracts, and cultivars have colors such as purple, red, white, pink, and lilac.

In Hawaii, it is commonly used in long-lasting leis since it retains its shape and color after drying. In Nepal the flower is used to make a garland for Brother’s Day. The garland is put around the brother’s neck by their sister for protection. In Trinidad, the flowers are boiled to make a tea which is used for baby gripe, oliguria, cough and diabetes; cooling.
