Tornado Red celosia was impressive in our trials, with large, dense carmine red flower combs on healthy green stems. Better yet, the seed is certified organic, so the variety has a leg up on other Celosias for the organics marketplace. Tornado Red is an excellent choice for both fresh and dried arrangements and can be creatively used in mixed bouquets or entirely on its own.
