Celosia argentea var. spicata ‘Cramer’s Amazon’ (Spike Celosia) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Sow the seeds indoors (about 1/4″ deep) under lights in warm conditions in early to mid-spring. Be aware that germination might be slow and erratic. (I usually see the first seedling(s) 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.) The seedlings have solid-green leaves (the reddish markings develop in summer). Set the seedlings out after all danger of frost has passed.

‘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 great as a long-stemmed cut flower too. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in October 2020. At least 15 seeds.
