If you're looking for spectacular flowers and gorgeous, vivid colors, potted celosia is just what you need. As a specialist in breeding pot celosia's from cuttings, Floritec now has no less than three series with a wide range of colors and shapes. These exotic-looking beauties add a much-welcomed pop of color to patio pots, bedding schemes, and any space in your home.
Potted Celosia Brings a Much-Needed Pop of Color
Celosia flowers, also known as 'wool flowers' or 'cockscombs' have many flowers that flourish for months on end. The genus Celosia belongs to the family of Amaranthaceae. It is native to the warm climates of Africa and Asia and appreciated for the showy inflorescences that are colorful and unusual like no other flower. When several pot celosia's bloom next to each other, they collectively give the impression of fire, which is why the botanical name Celosia - meaning 'burning' in Greek - was selected for this plant. The general name of cockscomb was given because the blooms also look similar to a rooster's comb.
Make a Statement
It would be difficult to find a flower with a more interesting shape and structure than celosia. Some look like fluffy flames blooming in your garden, while others have a definite Dr. Seuss-like appearance. All types of potted celosia have bright, vibrant colors and truly make a statement in your home or landscape. On top of that, they make excellent cut flowers for floral arrangements or can be dried and used in many ways. Floritec's celosia comes in various forms: with flaming torches, narrow spikes, or even a comb that looks eerily similar to a brain. You can enjoy this plant with a light spicy scent in a multitude of colors, from white, red, and yellow to pink, purple, and orange.

Essential Tips and Availability
The two essentials for growing celosia successfully are plenty of sunshine – at least 6 hours per day – and well-drained soil, as the roots are likely to rot in heavy soils. If you’re growing them as indoor plants, plant in containers filled with good multipurpose compost mixed with grit, and place them in the sunniest spot available. For the best flowers, move them outside in summer. The availability of these three stunning series of colorful potted celosia varies per country and region so make sure to always check with your account manager or contact Floritec directly.
