This form of Celosia produces slender, silvery-pink spikes of flowers during the warm summer months. It has been grown in the gardens of Monticello since 1984, when seed was obtained from Colonial Williamsburg. Seeds of this tender annual should be planted after the last spring frost in a sunny garden site. It grows to four feet in height.
Approximately 70-75 seeds per pack.
