Celosia argentea var. spicata ‘Cramer’s Amazon’ (Spike Celosia) [20 Seeds]

(3 customer reviews)


Germination Information: Start the seeds indoors (surface sown, or barely covered) under lights in warm conditions in early to mid-spring. Be aware that germination might be slow and erratic. (I usually see the first sprouts about a week after sowing on a heat mat under lights, with more over the next 2 to 3 weeks, and sometimes some additional seedlings appear a month or more after sowing.) Set the seedlings out after all danger of frost has passed. The seedlings have solid-green leaves; the reddish markings develop in summer.

‘Cramer’s Amazon’ spike celosia (Celosia argentea var. spicata or C. spicata) produces purplish pink flower spikes over burgundy-marked green leaves on 6- to 8-foot-tall stems. (If you’d prefer somewhat shorter, bushier plants, pinch off the stem tip when the plant is about 1 foot tall.) It’s a dramatic addition to a mixed border and excellent as a long-stemmed cut flower too. Full sun. Annual.

Collected in August and September 2022. At least 20 seeds.
