Product Description

Celosia spicata  (wheat celosia)

Slender soft pink plumes on erect stems fade to a blush color over time.  Plants reach about 36″ tall and are slightly frost tolerant.


Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before your last average frost.  Sow them about 1/8″ deep, making sure to cover them as light inhibits germination.  Kept at 65-70° F, germination is in 14-21 days.  Transplant into the garden 12-18″ apart for wheat celosia varieties (Flamingo Feather).


When plants are 6-8″ tall, pinch back to promote new growth and bushier plants.  Celosia grows best with consistent moisture.  Keep soil moist but not soggy.
