What are the pros? ez, pretty, yummy, self-sows

What are the cons? needs heat to start growing

Review:

These are my favorite in the garden. There is a central stalk about 3-5'h in excellent soil. In the center there is a large center flower and radiating from the stem are a lot of branches that work really well as a filler in a floral arrangement. See photo above, though none of my flowers were baby pink. The colors are usually bright yellow, crimson red, or magenta pink. Self-seeds freely. Delicious leaves raw or cooked.

Review:

I'm usually not great at growing flowers. I opened the flower packet and just threw the seeds on then ground, covered them up and hoped for the best. These flowers are gorgeous and came up fast! Visitors to our homestead are wowed by the vibrant colors. I will be growing these flowers every year!

What are the pros? great price! the web pic

What are the cons? all one color

Review:

I planted these very early in the Spring, as early as I could...I believe I live in zone 5 but we had a late frost in May and early June!! I know crazy right. And it was a cold summer start then turned into a rainy hot humid summer by mid July. So after the weather started warming up again near late June I decided to plant some more. They are growing pretty fast and they are blooming I don't know how tall they will get but all the plumes so far are a burgundy color. I hope to get more colors in there but even with the burgundy/maroon I will be pleased.

What are the pros? Easy germination rate

What are the cons? Small size

Review:

The germination rate was great! I'd say 75-95% but they didn't seem to like where I put them. They went in a bed with gladiolas, Mexican petunias, Dianthus and African Daisey, they all have done rather well, but these just grew to about 6 in and put off tiny little tufts of muted color. I will try again this year, but not in that same bed!

What are the pros? Easy to Grow - Huge!

What are the cons? All same color

Review:

I loved this Celosia. I'd always wanted to grow Celosia and never had any luck growing it in pots. Planted about 1/2 this package in most of it is 4 feet tall, with a couple of plants 5 feet. Beautiful. Some plumes are huge! My only disappointment was that there was no variety in color. It's all a deep rose/pink/burgundy color, but no yellows or oranges like on the pkg. I still love it though. Will plant more next year. :)
