Cockscomb (Celosia Argentea plumosa mixture) 200 seeds (#1353)

Approximately 200 seeds in 0.3g packet.
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.
