How to Grow:

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Flower heads get bigger over time so pick when they are the size that you want, but before they go to seed. Strip 80 percent of the foliage off during harvest. Celosias are a long-lasting cut flower oftentimes lasting over 2 weeks. Flowers can also be dried for later use. Hang freshly cut stems upside down in a warm dark place for 2-3 weeks or until they are firm to the touch.
