Celosia Flamingo Feathers - What a name! Tall plumes of creamy white flowers that change to the a deep rose pink. Really productive and easy to grow - tolerating fairly dry hot conditions. Perfect to plant alongside Zinnias and Cockscombs Celosia. A great filler, adding lovely textural qualities. Just to finish this can also be dried.
How to make these beauties grow
