There are three types of celosia flowers, based on their appearance. They are the crested type, plume type and wheat type.
Celosia flowers come in shades of red, purple, gold, orange and yellow. Small varieties grow to a height of 10 to 12 inches, and larger ones grow up to 2 feet.
Celosia flowers love hot temperatures and dry conditions. They need full sun, at least six hours a day, and soil that is rich and moist but not wet.
