Celosia, Flamingo Feather (Organic)

Celosia argentea var. spicata. 60 days. Perennial in zones 10-11.

Feathery silver/white flower spikes develop into a light pink that gets darker towards the tips. Soft texture begs to be touched and looks phenomenal in arrangements. A wheatstraw type, Flamingo Feather Celosia plants grow to 4’ tall producing many branches (up to 40!), each with a flower spike at the end. Spikes may be picked early when they are small, or if they remain on the plant they’ll just keep getting bigger until the end of the season. Dries well, too. Winner of a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit.

Surface sow indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost for transplant after danger of frost has passed. Requires light to germinate. Prefers warm growing conditions; may also be direct sown once soil is warm in areas with a long growing season. Thin or transplant to 10″ spacing. Pinch growth tips when plants are 8″ tall to promote branching and more flowers.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from seed heads that are fully dry. Thresh by hand or by dancing, winnow to clean. Finish air-drying if necessary before sealing in airtight container. Some cross-pollination may occur. Isolate from other varieties of same species by ¼ mile.
