Sun-Loving Annual | Intenz Celosia

The Intenz Celosia plant displays beautiful plumes of violet flowers, which happily rises from its foliage.  The leaves are green and pointy, and they retain their lovely color throughout the growing season.  They are an excellent choice for flower arrangements, and make beautiful filler plants when designing “spiller-thriller-filler” container combinations!

Celosia adapts well to different soil types.  Obviously, it will thrive and bloom more profusely in soil that contains high levels of organic matter.  It can also be propagated by cuttings.  This plant will require occasional maintenance, especially to keep it plump, bushy, and full of flowers.  For those that love to have butterflies in their landscape, this plant is a good choice for attracting them to your yard!
