Higyoku Red Stem Celosia

This red-tinged Japanese variety is totally gorgeous from leaf to flower! The burgundy foliage and stems are offset by the most striking vermillion heads, making it a bold choice for beds, borders, containers, and more. The plants stand 2 to 2.5 feet tall with multiple branches that produce heads ranging in size from small pokers to tightly ruffled f ist-sized crests or cockscombs. With its sturdy, multibranching habit, this versatile type is great for arrangements, and it also makes a deep crimson-colored herbal tea.
