Fabulous Plant!!!

Didn't have much luck in the dome germinating, but worked beautifully in seed tray. Took quit a bit longer to bloom than most Celosia but when it did it was huge and Beautiful and stayed that way until out first good freeze. Have lots of reorders for this beauty!

Leaves & stems show deep magenta early then fan shaped combs in same deep color start tiny & grow to about 3" on 10" plants by mid Summer (July). I grew mine in a 6" x 24" long pot & 2 rows of 7 plants made a nice pot full.
