Celosia argentea

Discontinued

Popular annual plant for Texas native to tropical Asia, as it enjoys heat and dryness, as long as it's in fertile, well drained loose soil.

Upright stems hold an abundant supply of tiny flowers that form a dense head, which come in bright shades of red, orange, gold, pink, and salmon. Popular choice for cut dry flowers. Old standard varieties self-seed easily.
