Cockscomb (Celosia Cristata Nana Jessica Mix) - You are sure to have people ask about your flowers when you grow Celosia seeds and plant them in your front border! Celosia Cockscomb flowers are so exotic and brilliant in their color. This mix of flower seeds will produce colors of yellow, orange, and red. Celosia Cristata Nana is a low-growing variety so it's well-suited for the front of the border or containers.

Cockscomb seeds can be started indoors to get a jump start on the growing season. Celosia roots prefer not to be disturbed, so it's recommended to start the flower seeds in peat pots that can be transplanted right into the ground. Press the flower seeds into the soil and lightly cover. Keep the flower seeds moist. For areas with a long growing season, Celosia seeds can be started directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed. The soil must be 60F or warmer for germination to occur. Use a application of a balanced fertilizer every few weeks during the blooming season.
