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.

What are the pros? Beautiful, bold color

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I love these flowers. The red is so bold and beautiful. They really make a statement and stand out in the garden. They have an interesting, brain-like shape with huge flower heads that produce tons of seeds. I will always find a place in my garden for these flowers.

What are the pros? Crown Jewel of summer!

What are the cons? wish I put in more

Review:

I had no idea how fabulously showy these would be. The pictures can't do these beauties justice. We have crummy, pure clay soil with a little road gravel mixed in but they love it. All the seeds took, so my 10 plugs each had 3 viable plants when it came time to transplant. I transplanted them in may on a north facing slope in full sun at the side of the driveway. Here in the hot, dry summer these enormous and rivetingly brilliant magenta crests are everyone's favorite. The stalks are an inch thick, healthy and strong even in wind. Bees and butterflies love them. Bugs don't seem to eat any part of them even with the bad Japanese beetles this year. They are knee-high and have combs up to a foot across on some plants. Side shoot combs are 3-4 inches across and they are completely maintenance free. I go out to enjoy them every single morning. I only wish I had put more in. Next year I'm buying more!

What are the pros? Huge dramatic flowers, easy

What are the cons? Blooms took a while to come on

Review:

These are so dramatic and easy to grow! They have really taken off here in July. After the main giant flower crests get going, lots of little sisters start down towards the base of the plant. These required no babying, and draw the eye like few other blooms. Grow these- you won’t be disappointed!

What are the pros? Stunning, large

What are the cons? none

Review:

I tested some that were sowed thickly without thinning and some that I thinned to only one plant every few feet. The ones that were not thinned did not get very big. The ones with plenty of space got HUGE. Lasted a long time in the garden. They dry very well, hold beautiful color and make long lasting interesting dried flower arrangements. Thousands of seeds on every stem. I have heard they reseed themselves to point of almost a nuisance if you don't like them. I love these and will grow them every year.
