Annual, to 48.” Beautiful color on short, plants; these can produce large heads that sometimes reach 8” across, although they vary. A perfect bedding plant that adds vibrant colors to any garden; even the smallest can fit in a few of these.

What are the pros? Beautiful, large blooms

What are the cons? None

Review:

I’m growing these along with the Tornado Red variety and both are lovely! Surprisingly one of these are even larger than the TR, reaching over 4’ tall & about 30” without being close to full size. They do well when spaced further apart and will get quite crowded if too close. After removing an old deadhead shoots from all around begin growing vigorously to display multiple blooms all around the plant. The stars of my garden for sure. I’ve received many questions and complements on these & the tornado red variety. I’ve gifted a few that I placed it pots which the recipients transplanted with great success. Next year I’ll purchase the variegated offering from Baker Creek and give them a try. You will not be disappointed with these or the TR.

What are the pros? Stunning color

What are the cons? Didn't buy enough.

Review:

Grew this as part of our cut flower operation in the 2017 season. Great germination and transplanted well from plugs into landscaping fabric. We pinched these back to 12-14" and was rewarded with 9-12 lateral shoots 18-24" long. They produced a reasonable 3-4" mini crest that florists and retail customers loved. We sold every stem. Stunning color. I had to harvest just for myself to dry! They dried a darker bronze color which plays well with the deep red and burgundy dried celosia varieties. We only had 2-3 plants that wanted to produce a rattail like bloom. All others produced crests.

What are the pros? Beautiful Color, multi blooms

What are the cons? none

Review:

Beautiful blooms. It will give you one big bloom on top plus multiple smaller blooms covering the plant all at the same time. Blooms seem to last a long time. Will bloom indoors under day length bulbs. I recommend starting in peat pellets on heated surface with a humidity dome, as soon as plants come up and the first leaves are open put them under lights, then when they need transplanting put them into their permanent container. Celosia and Cockscomb plants don't like to have their roots disturbed. Started mine on 1-3, transplanted 2-10, you could see the crest forming on 2-10 it's 4-25 and the blooms are still blooming including the main big bloom. They are tall plants.

Review:

I planted this variety and another you've carried in the past called Indiana Giant last year. A few things happened that I've never observed before! First, my gold finches and other birds LOVED the seeds. They would fight over the flower heads, even snapping a few! Second, they attracted a lot of leather wing beetles to the yard. The leather wings cleared my garden of aphids, there wasn't one in sight! And I have a lot of milkweed in my gardens so that's saying something! Third, honey bees and bumble bees adore this flower. On cold mornings in the fall I would see several bees tucked into all the nooks and crannies waiting for the sun to warm them up. This is a great fall nectar flower for bees! I will definitely be planting again!

I put seeds in the ground spring of 2014 and very little happened. a few sprigs of green . considered these flowers a flop. the following spring the growing began,flowers came up in places I didn't think I sowed, 2-3ft tall with the peach comb. very ,very pretty. worth the wait. consider these a perinneal if you live in zone 5
