Summer flower for colorful borders, balcony containers and pots.
Celosia argentea commonly called feather celosia, plumed celosia or feathered amaranth are old garden favorites that feature narrow-pyramidal, plume-like flower heads composed of tiny, densely-packed, vividly-colored flowers.
Flowers bloom throughout summer into fall (sometimes to frost) on erect stems clad with spear-shaped light green leaves. The flower heads sometimes project an artificial, almost plastic-like appearance that, to some gardeners, may border on the gaudy.
Genus name comes from a Greek word meaning “burning” in probable reference to flower head appearance. Plumosa Group comes from the resemblance of the flower head to the plumes of ostriches or gladiators.
