Although its flowers more closely resemble sea shells, coral or even a human brain, the plant Celosia Cristata owes its name to a farmyard bird!

This summer bloomer’s wavy, elongated flowers reminded its breeder of a rooster’s crest, so he decided to name it cockscomb.

Originally native to tropical America and Africa, these plants thrive in a hot climate, but they can also be grown in our part of the world as long as the temperature doesn’t drop below five degrees.
