Celosia

__________________________________________________________________________
This new perennial, Purple Celosia 'Intenz.' is provided by Ball Horticultural to the nursery and ornamental garden trade and is well worth an ardent perusal. It is found under various names including Celosia spicata or Celosia argentea var. spicata 'Flaminco feather' (wheat feather).  I have seen it in dramatic shades including magenta and purple and brilliant whites.



 Spikey grasses and flowers emote a carefree feeling of movement.

The celosia is a plant that lends itself to change. 
The colors and form can change from year to year.
