Celosia, Orient #2 Dwarf

This super-compact dwarf cockscomb features massive, lipstick-red crests. The tidy, busy plants average just 6 inches tall and bear impressive tightly woven and wrinkled heads, about 8 inches (or more) across. This is the perfect bedding cockscomb, but it is also ideal in pots, window boxes and other compact spaces. It looks stunning planted en masse or in the foreground of a mixed planting. The edible flowers make a lovely tea.
