Celosia

Celosia

Celosia are one of the most eye-catching annuals to grow in the garden.  The flower colors are not for the faint of heart; their vivid hues practically glow, lighting up the garden even on the rainiest summer days. Most commonly seen are dazzling red, yellow, cream, orange, rose, deep magenta, and pink. In addition to their eye-catching magnificence in the garden, taller varieties are excellent as cut flowers - both fresh and dried. Celosia can range in size from dwarf varieties that only grow four to six inches high to vigorous types over three feet tall.  Versatile, celosias grow in most any type of soil - even heavy clay - as long as they are in full sun. With unpredictable summer weather, you can count on celosia to come through heat and drought unscathed.
