Punc­tu­at­ing bor­ders with vivid pink tones and invit­ing tex­ture, the soft plumes of Celosia ar­gen­tea ‘Flamingo Feather’ can even­tu­ally reach 3¼ft (1m) tall. The name celosia trans­lates to fire or burn­ing in Greek, per­fectly con­vey­ing the bright pink, red and or­ange tones that can be found in dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties. Also known as cockscomb and woolflow­ers, celosia add colour and struc­ture to the gar­den. Part of the Amaran­thaceae fam­ily, celosia can be an­nu­als, peren­ni­als or shrubs. Tiny flow­ers clus­ter in large, ta­per­ing in­flo­res­cences. Es­tab­lished seedlings are planted out in spring, when all risk of frost has passed, flow­er­ing in 90 days. The flow­ers are easy to dry, mak­ing them per­fect to bring in­doors for dec­o­ra­tion or craft.
