Celosia Ammerlaan-Sosef Celosia Ammerlaan-Sosef

Celosia

Celosia has several faces. The plant is available with flaming torches (spicata, sturdy spear-like flowers), adorable little tails or a fantastic comb full of velvet whorls that look like brains. The colours are blinding: white, red, yellow, pink, purple, orange, green or multi-coloured, which combine colours such as orange and red. Celosia reaches a height of 35-40 cm, has a slightly spicy fragrance and needs nothing apart from enough water to keep flowering beautifully for months. Grower of this product: Ammerlaan-Sosef.

Care tips

Partial shade, light or full sun: Cockscomb doesn’t mind.
Don’t allow the soil to dry out – Cockscomb likes to drink.
Some plant food once a week helps extend the flowering.
Don’t place Cockscomb near the fruit bowl. Fruit emits ethylene gas that causes flowers to age more rapidly.
Cockscomb can also go outdoors during seasons when there’s no frost.
