There are two types of celosia that are commonly known in horticultural circles: plumed types produce feathery plumes above the plants (C. argentea plumosa; 40.5M seeds/oz); and cockscomb types that have crested flower heads with wavy combs (C. argentea cristata; 30 to 40.5M seeds/oz). Growers and gardeners alike enjoy dwarf celosia for their use in gardens, and mixed containers, plus there are a number of taller types that make great cut flowers for both fresh and dried use.
