‘Cramer’s Burgundy’ cockscomb (Celosia argentea var. cristata or C. cristata) produces velvety, crinkled heads in a rich purplish red color on 3- to 5-foot-tall stems. Some of the plants produce a thick stalk topped with one huge flowerhead; others form a smaller central head and many smaller side heads. ‘Cramer’s Burgundy’ is excellent as a cut flower at pretty much any size, and it dries beautifully as well. It is a wonderful “please-touch” flower for a children’s garden too. Full sun. Annual.
Harvested in late August 2020. At least 20 seeds.
