We started as a cut flower farm... and are happy to share these heirloom seeds from our flower crop.
With a unique flower head that looks and feels like velvet, cockscomb celosia is one of our very favorite flowers, both fresh and dried. It is easy to grow and the flower heads work beautifully in a cut flower arrangement, or when dried can be used in arrangements or to make gorgeous wreaths. Each plant produces many stems with 2-6" heads. Can easily be dried by hanging upside down 2-4 weeks in a warm dark place. Holds its color well when dried.
This mix includes colors ranging from pale yellow, gold, pink, lime and dark red.
Approximate seeds per packet: 100
Start seeds indoors approximately 4-6 weeks before last frost, set out when all danger of frost is past. Plant spacing: 12-18"
