Pampas Plume Celosia

These 28-inch celosias are the originals that provide a dramatic background planting in any setting and are excellent long-lasting cut flowers. In our demonstration gardens, the eye was immediately drawn to these plants due to the stately grace of the stems and vivid colors--scarlet rose, carmine, gold, cream, and bronze.

So far so good!

Just planted about 10-12 seedling in my garden. That was about 50% of what I sowed. Those planted look strong though.

Not sure what went wrong, probably my fault.

Germination rate was good, they all came up, but I wasn't able to put them outside soon enough, and they got too lanky and fell over, and then they died. This was one time when the amount of seed sent wasn't enough, as I wasn't able to replant. Oh well--

I got excellent germination and can tell I have a variety of colors as advertised.
