Saw these beautiful plants at a local King Soopers (part of the Kroger family). Lady in the floral dept had no idea what they were, just "Foxtail". Uh, that's not too helpful. LOLL!! Some kind of amaranthus?

Looks like a variety of Celosia

Wheatstraw Celosia (Celosia spicata 'Cramer's Amazon')
Cockscomb (Cristata Group) (Celosia argentea 'Cramer's Burgundy')
Celosia argentea 'Intenz Classic'

Linda - That's what I was thinking when I first saw them, but the only "Foxtail" I found that was even kinda sorta not really close was the amaranth. But Cock's Comb does look more like it! Thank you! Now I know it won't grow for me.. LOLLL

I think most folks grow them as annuals.

I guess I noticed it because my husband teaches at an Aeronautical University and I spotted the plane and was curious. Green Grin!
