Variegated Cockscomb

Rating:
98% of 100

Annual. This fabulously novel variegated cockscomb from antiquity has been brought back from obscurity! This variety was described as a beautiful and unusual floral oddity in The Country Gentleman’s Magazine, a British periodical from 1874. It was offered by several catalogs of that era, and it is still a favorite in our garden today, as the dueling tones are a playful riot of color. Alien-like combs sit atop three-foot tall plants. We expect this one-of-a-kind weirdo to be warmly embraced by gardeners and floral designers! Lovely 4-6-inch flowers are a joy! Note: variegation varies a lot from plant to plant.
