Celosia argentea plumosa 'Castle Pink'


Vividly colored, plumed and crested flower heads make these whimsical curiosities and bold garden accents. Plume types produce feathery, upright flower heads like ostrich plumes. Crested types resemble rooster combs. Flowers come in scarlet, yellow, pink rose, apricot orange, purple, salmon and cream. Long-lasting and effective when planted in masses or with other brightly colored flowers. Dwarf varieties are suitable for containers or edging. Excellent cut or dried flowers. Tall varieties are best as background plants and may require staking. Sow seed or transplant seedlings only when soil is warm. Huge flower heads develop best in rich soil with some fertilizer, but grow well in poor soils.
