Product Description

Versatile, Vibrant Red Celosia Plumes

With its unique, green-red foliage and blazing-red, long-lasting plumes, the Dragon’s Breath® Celosia makes a dramatic statement in any garden or landscape. Accentuated with iridescent, variegated foliage, this celosia has quickly caught the eye of garden enthusiasts, retailers, and landscape lovers alike.

Living up to its name, the Dragon’s Breath® Celosia loves the sun and will even flourish in harsh temperatures, with extreme heat and humidity bringing out even deeper colors of red in its blooms. Cooler night temperatures have the same impact, proving this variety's adaptability and hardiness.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For garden planting, plant in well-drained, moist, or dry soil rich in organic matter, such as well-decomposed compost, and in full sun. If repotting into larger containers, don't bury the main stem below the soil surface.

2. Watering: Water your Dragon’s Breath® Celosia regularly and keep the soil moist for the first 7-10 days after planting. Mulch if desired to help retain soil moisture, and water more if under severe drought.

3. Fertilizing: Feed with a slow-release fertilizer upon planting.
