What are the pros? Bright color, compact size

What are the cons? Only one color

Review:

I'm not a flower grower so I didn't know what to expect here but these seeds germinated easily, grew up fast and strong, and out of many different flower types I planted at the same time were the first to bloom. The smaller size means I was able to fit a lot into my fairly small flower bed, which was nice because I hate thinning seedlings. My only complaint was every seed produced the same color flower (a deep pink) save for one orange, which has still not even a quarter blossomed yet compared to how far along the rest are. The pinks are gorgeous but I was hoping for more diversity. I will also add that the foliage on the cockscomb has held up perfectly compared to the store bought celosia in the same bed, which has bleached and browned in the sun.

What are the pros? Beautiful, germinates well

What are the cons? Can get tall

Review:

I love cockscomb and these germinated easily from direct sowing. They make nice combs and points (seems to make a balanced blend of both). They really are varied. They grow so easily. Sadly some of mine got pretty tall, about 8" before the flower starts. It may have just needed a lot of light early on though. They are related to amaranth and quinoa so the plant is edible, but I haven't tried that yet.

Review:

Beautiful blooms. Totally neglected and still made it through. Some stems even ended up tall enough for cut flowers. I saved most of them for dried flower wears. Highly recommend for unique flower experience

What are the pros? colors, unique, edible

What are the cons? ugly bugs attracted

Review:

Perfect for tiny spaces. I have one growing beautifully with minimal room for root growth! These grow quickly in hot conditions similar to peppers. Edible flowers I am told, but I only eat the leaves. They are an excellent alternative to bitter salad greens in the hot days of summer. There is a wide variety of colors: crimson, magenta, salmon & orange, and yellow. The color of the seedling does not always correspond to the color of the resulting flower. Excellent cut flower fresh or dry, but I would recommend the larger variety for more blooms with longer stems. The stems on mine are only about 6-7" long. Self-seeds.
