Grown for their unique, textural blooms, celosias are vigorous and free flowering. A summer cutting garden workhorse, they thrive in hot and dry conditions. One of the fastest varieties to flower, these wispy plumes add lightness and texture to mixed bouquets. This mix includes pale lemon, apricot, cream, cranberry and soft orange and will churn out buckets of feathery flower heads for the better part of summer.

How to Grow: Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed.
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.
