CELOSIA CRISTATA CHIEF SERIES
So much intense beautiful color! There is nothing like a good side by side trial to show the true nature of a plant. I hope they do well for me also. Once again, so informative and inspiring!! We grew these beauties with no pinch which resulted in one large foxtail flower each. Through this collaborative site, we are creating the opportunity for breeders, growers, wholesalers and florists to share their knowledge and passion for the incredible diversity of flowers that make our industry so unique.
Matte grey-green foliage, nice full heads, pinky-salmon just like the fish flesh blooms. The color is a muted salmon-washed out orange. Do you have any helpful advice on better germination rates? Great in wedding work. Following are many of my favorites but keep in mind that results will certainly vary depending on your location and particular floral needs. Plants grew very well in the low hoops and the first stems were harvested by late August. The plants just didn’t do as well major problem was stunted growth of plant height and size of flower head as direct sown plants. I love Celosia too especially the feathery one!
Substitutes Add Substitute No Substitutes has been proposed yet. Electric carmine red brain shaped blooms. Very disease resistant and vigorous. Will have to try growing some next year.

Otherwise, does very well direct sown to garden location after last spring frost, sowing in very shallow rows and covering only lightly with soil. Tracy on February 11th https: Do you have any helpful advice on better germination rates?
My amazing Gloeckner rep Tom Jobb track this guy down! Close Share with friends By Email. I think perhaps covering the tray with clear wrap or domes may help next time.
But last spring we put up three new ft hoops and set aside adequate space for a trial. The minimum nighttime temp of 60 is helpful info. So much intense beautiful color!

Invormative and helpful, thanks for your hard work in delivering good quality photos to us. Looking back, they should have been pinched much harder so that branching would have started down lower, resulting in better overall stem cistata.
Packets of seed started rolling in from all of the generous donors throughout the months of March and April, and we got seedlings growing in their plugs trays by mid May. A great group of plants which were very vigorous and disease free. Angela on June 8th Hi Cristtaa, You often give in row spacing as well as numbers of rows per bed.
