Amazement in a vase! A must-have for bouquets, these large, feathery, golden-yellow to scarlet plumes stand out on long, straight stems and attract pollinators. In the garden, the multi-branching plants are noted for their exceptionally beautiful foliage, and along with height, are perfect for the back of the flower bed. Plants handle heat with ease and are fairly drought tolerant. Also known as Prince of Wales feather.

The colors were outstanding, very vibrant. They lacked size, as none were giants. Still, made a great cutflower.

First year growing these. Absolutely beautiful and Tall! Bees love them in the late fall season with hardly anything blooming.
Gregory from NY

Fun and Colorful!

I grew these in three pots, which is probably not a best practice, but they still turned out beautiful. Rich yellows, purples, and reds and such a visually interesting plant! I was surprised how much the bees liked them. What's been almost more fun is the oodles of junco birds that have been eating the seeds for about a month. I highly recommend.

The tall plumed ones were wonderful

4 out of 5 stars Jan 23, 2023
These were incredible last year! I started them indoors and transplanted to pots and garden bends. They grew beautifully! However, this envelope of seeds included a wide variety of Celosia, which is not what was advertised. There were some absolutely beautiful tall and wide plants, but there were also some smaller 12" plants, and many that were very short - only a few inches. This was odd for a tall assortment, and disappointing. There were also wheat type Celosia mixed in with the advertised plumed variety. The yellow color was disappointing - it was more white with a hint of yellow. There were no orange flowers and the only pink were the super short ones. But I was so impressed with the tall plumed variety in the reddish purple color that I am ordering again.
