Massive 8-12 inch magenta heads teeter atop tall plants with lush foliage. The large dense combs have brilliant garnet and violet tones that shimmer in the back border or as a large focal point in arrangements. With dwarf cockscomb dominating the market in recent years, it can be difficult to find tall varieties. Tornado red proudly stands 2 feet tall, and will bloom from late spring until fall frost. A stunning variety that hold its rich, crushed velvet color when cut.

Review:

I grew these from seed in 2017. The seeds germinated easily in seed trays. After I transplanted them out in the garden, they just kind of stalled and nothing happened for a few weeks. Once they finally established and took off, they grew beautifully! I am going to try direct sowing them this year. Tornado Red is a tall variety, just like grandmothers used to grow back in the day. Each plant produced one huge flower head on the main stem but also produced smaller side shoots/stems that start near the base of the plant. The side shoots produced smaller flowers.

Review:

The pictures do not do this plant justice. Beautiful deep red flowers. I planted the whole pack of seeds last year, and they germinated well. I had more plants than I needed. I dumped a flat of extra plants behind my greenhouse where I "compost" stuff to re-use in my raised beds. At the end of the summer with no tending at all I had gorgeous red flowers growing there. I picked many and put them in vases. I purchased these seeds again this year, because this is one plant that I will keep growing from now on.
