Thomas Jefferson noted the planting of seeds of “Cockscomb, a flower like the Prince’s feather,” in 1767. He may have been referring to the crested form of Celosia with its strange scarlet combs that are furrowed and lobed. Still today, the shockingly curious, fiery-red flowers of the Cockscomb delight visitors to Monticello. Introduced from Asia in the 16th century, this tender, tropical annual grows 3'-4' tall. Sow indoors in pots or plant seeds in a sunny site after the last spring frosts.

Approximately 70-75 seeds per pack.
