Tornado Red Celosia (Cockscomb) have large, dense flower combs that are burgundy-red. The blooms can grow any where from 6-9 inches! You will be graced with color from late spring until the first frost in the fall. The large blooms make great cut flowers and are especially great for dried arrangements because they hold their color. They like to be moist but not soggy. If they are watered too much then the stems become leggy and soft. Celosia provides flower beds and borders eye-catching color all season long and require minimal care.
