Celosia flowers, also called woolflowers or cockscombs, have unusual flowers that can bloom up to 10 weeks. These flowers can have red, pink, purple, gold or bicolored blooms. When many celosia flower blooms are next to each other, they collectively resemble fire, which is why the genus name Celosia.
The common name of cockscomb comes from the bloom’s resemblance to a rooster’s comb. And each blossom is made up of many tiny flowers, which is why this flower will produce numerous small seeds and keep sprouting in your plant containers with no extra effort on your part. Celosia flowers also look great in vases and bouquets, so you can bring their beauty indoors.
Cockscomb seeds are best planted one-half inch deep in a sunny location covered loosely with soil that drains well. The soil is kept lightly moist until the seeds germinate. Covering the seeds with a sheet of spun polypropylene fiber can help keep the soil most. Once they develop two sets of true leaves, the seedlings are thinned, keeping the strongest ones in the garden.
