I agree that it's Celosia and if you can't find out which one it is, you can upload the photo to the "General" entry in the database:

Yep, the others ID'd it for you.

Hello Abigail! Welcome!

Those Celosia plants certainly look healthy, did you grow them yourself?

I found a site which tells you some different 'series' of Celosia on the market.

http://www.sabellico.com/index.php?m=view&file=getplants&iCa...

Did you buy young plants, or did you grow them from seed?
