Make a statement with Celosia!

A statement flower that might tickle your fancy is Celosia, (also known as Cockscomb), whether on it’s going solo or in the mix, it certainly creates that WOW factor and captures your eye. The name ‘Celosia’ is derived from the Greek word ‘kelos’, meaning ‘fire’. This is because of the plume shaped flowers that resemble a flame in some varieties.

There are two main types of celosia, (1). Plumes – with an upright fluffy, flame like flower and, (2). Brains – with a large, single, crinkly flower that resembles a brain! Celosia is available in many colours – deep terracotta and lime green varieties look particularly classy and typically from April and November.

What do you think? Convinced? 

To get the best from your wholesale cut Celosia, please read the care instructions below carefully:

  • Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
  • Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food.
  • Place the celosia in the buckets.
  • Leave over night to condition before using.

Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the celosia in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
