Celosia Bright Sparks Mix

Celosia (Cockscomb) sel-LOW-shu 

Bright Sparks Mix: Bright Sparks Celosia Mix brings a zap of brilliant color to nearly any garden situation. This versatile plant is very heat tolerant, which makes it an excellent choice for containers or any full sun garden. The plants stay compact but upright, only growing to about 12″ tall, and they are topped by electrically bright plumes in scarlet, yellow and burgundy. These make long-lasting cut flowers and they keep most of their color as dried flowers. Bright Sparks shows more branching than other Celosia types, which simply results in more plumes per plant.

Description

Celosia (Cockscomb) sel-LOW-shu                                                                        

A real show stopper! Celosia is a member of the amaranth family and is a very common plant in summer annual gardens due to their ease of care and wide array of flower structures and colors. The name Celosia originates from the Greek word for “burning” due to the flame-like flower heads. The species used for flowering annuals is believed to be native to the Mediterranean region or East Africa and also commonly known as “woolflowers”.  A kaleidoscope of color whether you plant the plumed type, upright spires or the crested type with its unique twisted form. The flowers are beautiful in fresh bouquets or the flowers can be easily dried if hung upside down.
