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. Celosia is an annual that is easily grown from seed. The dried flowerheads are excellent in dried arrangements where they retain their color and don't disintegrate all over the place.
