Coral Garden Celosia

A medium-sized, 6 to 8-inch plant with large combs of brilliant colors ranging from light yellow to vibrant fuchsia. The size of the combs varied from 4 inches to almost 8 inches across. These can be used for fresh arrangements or dried. It's like adding a velvet ribbon when used dry on an evergreen wreath. 

50 seeds

Count on Them for four years

I've not had a better experience with seed companies! My seeds germinate so much faster and the end product is outstanding. My flower and vegie seeds are A number One!!! I will be ordering again next spring if not this fall! Prices aren't the lowest but the quality makes up for it so far.

celosia

I did have an issue with germination. Don't have a greenhouse, but rather a sunroom, few seeds did germinate and are beautiful. Will save those seeds

Amazing

Could not have gone better. Almost all the seeds germinated, and if they didn’t germinate as quickly as others, they still did eventually! I have many amazing colors and shapes! Not all the coral garden shaped celosia but I love them!
