What I know…
It is a Celosia argentea var. spicata.

What I don't know…
I'm not positive of it being 'Flamingo Feather', as it was gifted as cuttings, and she was not sure of the name, and the coloration of the leaves on mine are not the same as those of other's that I've seen, although the 'plumes' are identical.
So, I guess my question is, if adding to the database, would I add as the general Celosia argentea var. spicata., or as the variety 'Flamingo Feather'?

Thanks for anything that you may be able to add here.

hmm ... I though Flamingo Feather was just a common name for Celosia argentea; I didn't realize it was a cultivar.
