Wow! I'd never seen them in that color! Pretty! Does it have a name?

Have you tried China Town? It's one I have just a few of this year. Very pretty, with red foliage.

Celosia (Celosia argentea 'China Town')

Got curious and went looking for purple celosia. Does this look familiar? Smiling

Hey, Joanna, I saw these at our local HD garden center too..I was shocked to learn that they were Celosias..I thought they were called "bunny tails" Boy, those are going to be a shock for sore eyes..a car stopper! Are they a perennial or annual. I didn't look at the tag too close except to see that they were celosias..What other flowers will you plant them near?

Pippi,

I bought a 10" planter of them and have them placed in a bed that is all containers. I'm not sure of the variety since there was no plant tag. I think celosia are annuals, at least they are here.
