Celosia, 'Supercrest and Friends'
A stunning array of cockscombs, fans, and "Celway" varieties all mixed up! It is anyone's guess what may appear but surprises are mostly nice, right?! In this case, you can bet on some lovely mixes in a rainbow of colors and shapes. Known for velvety, long standing blooms, long vase length, fresh and dried uses, a love of and tolerance of heat, and vibrant colors, celosias are some of the most unusual flowers we grow. The first generation of a fun project that we’ll look forward to selecting year after year. Seed was only saved from the most beautiful plants of the "Supercrest" variety so that is guaranteed to be at least half the genetics of each seed. Enjoy! 2-3.5’ Annual.
