Organic Red Flame Celosia
95 days to harvest
Celosia argentea cristata
This cockscomb-style celosia is like vivid red velvet with bright burgundy leaves that wow us all summer. Her long, strong 16+ inch stems are ideal for both fresh and dry arrangements. Like so many flowers, the more you harvest, the more you’ll continue to harvest. The first flush of Red Flame is the largest, often dwarfing our hands; her heads gradually getting smaller with each successive harvest. From boutonnieres and garlic braids to autumn wreaths and winter bouquets, we can’t wait to see how you weave celosia into all season!
For bouquets, harvest celosia at peak blossom. For straight stems in dry arrangements, hang celosia upside down to dry for two weeks.
At Fruition, we sow celosia indoors in soil blocks
four weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost.
