Celosia cristata Cocks'comb Jengger ayam Amaranthaceae
 

Celosia  cristata, Cocks'comb, Jengger ayam

 

Celosia  cristata, Cocks'comb, Jengger ayamOf uncertain origin, this annual species has appeared in recent years as a cut flower.
Growing to 24 in (60 cm) or more tall, it has an erect, slender habit and much narrower leaves than Celosia argentea. The flowers are neatly crowded onto terminal spikes, opening progressively from the base with the buds purplish pink and the chaffy flowers ageing to pale silvery pink as the spikes elongate.
The flowers last well when dried.
Cultivation: They require full sun, rich, well-drained soil and constant moisture.
Propagate from seed.
