Also called wolfsflower or cockscomb, celosia is a real standout in the garden. It’s no surprise that the word “celosia” comes from the Greek word for “burning,” as the bright plumes of this flower have feathery spikes that look a bit like flames shooting skyward. Plant celosia in flower beds, borders, and pots for long-lasting color. Use the flowers fresh-cut or dried.
