Celosia - Knowledgebase Question

Chillicothe, OH
Question by gloven

I am interested in a Celosia called "Prestige Scarlet".
It has a very full bloom but is in a circle form rather than a crested comb shape. Looks just like a hairy brain.
Do you carry this seed -I don't see it in last years catalogue- if not could you tell me where I could get seed.

We seen the flowers at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio and they were beautiful and unique.

Thank You.

I think I know exactly what you are looking for, I grow it as "Cockscomb Celosia" and it looks just like what you are describing. There are two varieties available from Parks, the one you mention, and another called "Celosia Fireglow". You can reach Parks at phone # 1-800-845-3369. Enjoy!
