Celosia Nana Glitters Scarlet Celosia Plumosa is a tropical flowering perennial that is commonly grown as an annual in gardens. The spring is the best time to sow Celosia Nana Glitters seeds outdoors, and also called Plumed Cockscomb, Woolflower and Plume Plant, Celosia Nana Glitters Scarlet is a dwarf selection that grows only 6 inches tall and produces stunning feathery, plumy, red, scarlet flower clusters over the compact mounds of dark green foliage. The Celosia's magnificent blooms are very showy, and they appear through summer and fall until frost providing a display of bright red color and attracting butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
Celosia Nana Glitters Scarlet is an outstanding border plant for sunny borders, and Celosia is a highly regarded flower for containers or window boxes. Celosia Plumosa seeds germinate quickly, and once established, this low maintenance plant is heat and drought tolerant. The preferred growing conditions are full sun and moist, well-drained soil, but Woolflower is adaptable to less than perfect environment. Scarlet Celosia is a popular houseplant and cut flower that can be used in fresh or dried floral arrangements.
