Celosia (Castle Yellow) - Celosia seeds are easy to grow and produce blooms usually within 90 days of starting the flowers seeds! This Celosia is a dwarf variety, and it is excellent in the hot, full sun border and performs wonderfully in hot, humid climates. Celosia is also known as Cockscomb and Plume Plant, which are descriptive of the erect feathery, plume-like heads of flowers. This Plume Plant Celosia is brilliant orange and gives a dazzling display of color. Celosia flowers are excellent for cutting. The plume-like blooms are wonderful in either fresh or dried arrangements. To dry the Celosia flowers, hang them upside down in a cool dark, well-ventilated place for several weeks.
Celosia plants like full sun, and they perform their best when grown in rich soil with lots of organic matter added to the soil. The soil needs to be moist but not saturated. Water Plume Plant Celosia regularly during dry periods. Celosia benefits from applications of general purpose fertilizer once or twice a month.
Celosia seeds are very tiny. For areas with a long growing season, Celosia flower seed can be directly sown into your flower garden in prepared soil after frost season has passed. For cooler areas with shorter growing seasons, start the Celosia seeds 4- 6 weeks before the last expected frost. Press the Celosia seeds into the soil but do not cover them. The flower seeds need to stay moist, and require warm soil to germinate. Pinch back the early blooms to encourage more branching.

Additional Policies and FAQs
When To Plant ?
The best time to plant in your area depends on the climate and rainfall patterns as well as the species you are planting. In cool climates, plant annuals, perennials or mixtures of annuals and perennials in spring, early summer or late fall. Fall plantings should be late enough so that seeds do not germinate until spring. Perennials can also be sown in early fall provided that there are at least 10-12 weeks of growing time before the plants go dormant for the winter. Late fall plantings are advantageous when supplemental irrigation cannot be provided and adequate rainfall is anticipated in the spring.
In mild climates, plant during the cooler months of the year, fall through spring, for best results. Fall plantings done prior to periods of rainfall will insure an early display of flowers the following spring.
What is an heirloom or heritage seed?
The terms heirloom and heritage are synonymous. An heirloom plant is an open-pollinated, cultivated plant, or cultivar. Heirloom plants are not used in modern large-scale agricultural, but they were traditionally grown during earlier periods in human history. All heirloom seed are open-pollinated.
What is the difference between open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
Open-pollinated plants are pollinated by birds, insects, wind, or other natural means. Under these conditions the plant will produce seeds naturally. When these seeds are harvested and re-planted they will reproduce the same plant as the parent. Conversely, a hybrid plant is the result of controlled pollination of inbred parent plants. The plant’s seeds are often sterile and, if they do germinate, they will not reliably produce the same plant as the parent or the yields.
What is the difference between GMO and non-GMO seeds?
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic substance has been changed using genetic engineering methods. Non-GMO seeds have not been genetically changed, and they are traditionally the same as they were originally created. Non-GMO seeds have all of the nutrition that animal and human bodies need for maximum growth and nutrition. Traditional seeds grow into plants that have been consumed for thousands of years. Non-GMO seeds offer you the peace of mind that the foods you grow and eat are as nature intended.
