Annual. 34,000 seeds/oz.

Celosia New Look
This is the first time I have found seeds, but I have grown these from plants for the last 3 years along the edge of my front sidewalk. They are spectacular and elicit comments from neighbors and strangers walking by. They bloom until frost gets them and require almost no deadheading all summer. I have interplanted them with pink geraniums and with orange Fresh Look celosia (not both at the same time) and both are smashing. These are particularly lovely in the late summer/early autumn sun.
