Celosia

Celosia Intenz Classic has vibrantly coloured spiky blooms which are perfect to add texture into mixed containers or as a stand alone eye catcher in a patio pot.  It is a fairly low maintenance plant which can also be used in the landscape in a full sun location.

The 'Twisted' Celosia is a stunning variety that has "twisted" crested flower heads to add a unique accent in your garden or container.  Celosia hails originally from the Tropics, so be sure to wait until the weather is warm and settled before planting them out in the garden.

New this season, Intenz Dark Purple and Lipstick, as well as Kelos Purple and Kelos Rose Celosias claiming to be a real show stoppers!
