Celosia Flamingo Seeds

Celosia Flamingo Seeds

Celosia spicata

Item #1299

Annual. Also called Wheat Celosia, these colorful plants add a lovely vertical element to the flower border and make a statement when grown in a large container. The pretty, rosy-pink, soft flower spikes have a touchable appearance that nearly begs passersby to reach out and “pet” them! It is especially interesting to watch the bases turn silvery as they mature. Excellent cut flowers for fresh or dried arrangements. Perennial in USDA zones 10 to 12.
