All-America Award Winner! This was the first dwarf Celosia variety to have bronze foliage. It is well-branched and bushy, producing spikes of large, blazingly-red blooms all summer long. The entire plant is quite hardy, tollerating wind, rain, and scorching summer heat while maintaining individual blooms for eight weeks or more. Excellent for pots and containers, as well as accents, borders, mass plantings, or for cutting and drying.
