The native celosia are a medium green color with silvery white flowers that appear during the summer months. Through culivation two specific cultivars of this plants are now found. The first cultivar is the Plumosa group which is characterized by its plume like flower stalk which comes in a wide range of hot colors including yellow, crimson, and orange. The other group is the Cristata group which is characterized by it wavy crest of fused flowers stalks which comes in a multitude of colors. The Spicata Group (often classified as a distinct species, Celosia spicata) includes cultivars with slender, cylindrical pink or rose flowerheads which have a metallic sheen because the individual flowers are silvery-white at their bases. Celosias thrive in hot, humid weather. The celosias require constant moisture, but a well drained soil. Water before the soil dries out. The flowerheads of the Plumosa and Spicata cultivars are beautiful in fresh flower arrangements.
