Variegated Cockscomb

97% of 100

Annual. This fabulously novel variegated cockscomb from antiquity has returned! This color 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 is still a favorite in our garden today. The dueling tones are a playful riot of color on these alien-like combs sitting atop 3' plants. This one-of-a-kind plant is warmly embraced by gardeners and floral designers alike! The varied variegation on these lovely 4-6" flowers is a joy!
