Dracula Celosia Seedlings

Certified Organic

Celosia cristata

Branching plants produce a plethora of brightening blooms.

We are in love with this celosia, a low-growing cockscomb type in deep, rich shades of burgundy and vermillion. A key component of our Goth Garden Mix that we wanted to highlight on its own, this celosia enchants everyone with its the deepest, darkest reds. Maxing out at about 18" in height and with deep, purply-black foliage, it makes an intriguing, unusual bedding plant, contrasting beautifully with brighter greens and yellows. It also excels as both a cut and dried flower, in which form it lives on, like its namesake, nearly indefinitely.
