Looks nothing like other images of Cramer's Burgundy:

Could possibly be Cramer's Amazon instead?

sandnsea2, do you have a possible correct ID for this image? As Angie pointed out, this is clearly not the correct cultivar.
The word "cristata" means crested.

Just a thought...this picture might have been taken before the crests formed. Shrug!

[On my plants I get a lot of these, and only a few ever develop the crest formation.]

It looks a lot like the second image of Cramer's Amazon, here:

I wonder if she purchased it as a plant, if the tags just got switched?

I think this color is all wrong for Cramer's burgundy
I have grown this plant many years and even the young plants have a deeper color not pink.
At the very least it is a bad representation of this specific celosia
I propose it be moved to the general celosia category Smiling
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Sandnsea2 is no longer active on ATP, so I moved the image to the general Celosia entry in accordance with Cinda's proposal.
