Celosia argentea var. cristata. Annual.
Cockscomb, also known as wool flower or brain celosia, is a striking choice for a summer garden. Toreador’s stately deep red, crested, 2-5″ flower heads emerge from stiff, leafy stems and bloom from late summer into early fall. Cockscomb attracts bees and other pollinating insects, and is perfect for fresh or dried cut flowers. Fresh cut flowers can last up to 14 days.
