Celosia argentea cristata
If I ever write a book on cut flowers, I'll put this scrumptious Celosia smack on the cover! Tightly curling waves of sexy, velvety blooms, 4-6" across, make the most gorgeous cut flowers, lasting 3+ weeks in a vase,holding their color when dried! Multi-stemmed to 30" x 24", they’re easy if you don't crowd them, holding up to 10, richest crimson "brains" at a time on upright stalks. Rich, well drained soil.
