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.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
