'Pink Spiked' Celosia

Celosia cristata 'Pink Spiked'

[celosia_cristata_pink]

Jefferson noted planting "Cockscomb" in 1767. By this he most likely meant the scarlet-colored Celosia cristata. The 'Pink Spiked' variety shows spikes of silvery-pink flowers rather than the lobed forms of the Cockscomb. 'Pink Spiked' has been grown in the gardens of Monticello since 1984, when seed was obtained from Colonial Williamsburg.
