Celosia argentea cristata
This is the spicata subspecies, making 24-30" stems topped with hot pink "feather" spikes. Bold in the bed or the bouquet. Annual members of the Amaranth family, native to the southern hemisphere where they plague farmers as weeds. The ornamental kinds are placed in their own subspecies (cristata), which is further divided into groups of flower types-- Cristata (cockscombs), Plumosa (feathery plumes), and Spicata (wheat or spiked plumes). These plants thrive on heat. Space 12-18" apart for continuous cutting, or as close as 6x6" if harvesting as a single cut. Seeds need light and warmth for germination. 

Approximately 50 Seeds per/pkg.
