‘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 starting in late August 2021. At least 20 seeds.
