Hi, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb. If you're looking for a plant that's really vibrant, you've got to think of the Cock's Comb, or Celosias, as they're often called. The Cock's Comb, you can get them well the name comes from the beautiful flower that tends to come up just like a cock's comb on a rooster. And of course they come in yellow, they come in gold, they come in different shades of Apricot. They're a beautiful plant that doesn't seem to have too many problems. It's a nice annual flower that you can have in a wall and basket area, or you can have it out in front of your home. It's a nice entryway plant. Now, they won't last too long. They're going to be a seasonal plant, but if you're looking for something that's a real showstopper think of these in mass plantings. If you've got twenty, or thirty, or forty of them in a group, you're going to have people stopping at your front door, saying what's that beautiful plant that you have growing out there? It's a plant that takes full sun to partial shade. Make sure you fertilize it about ever month or two in a high light area, and maybe every three to four months in a low light area. Cocks Comb or Celosia is an easy plant to grow, and makes a vibrant plant in your landscape. For On Gardening, I'm Stan De Freitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
