Cockscomb Info

Cockscombs (Celosia ) are a small genus of edible and ornamental plants in the amaranth family, Amaranthaceae. The generic name is derived from the Greek word (kelos), meaning "burned," and refers to the flame-like flower heads. Species are commonly known as woolflowers, or, if the flower heads are crested by fasciation, cockscombs. Despite its African origin (a claim that is not without dispute), celosia is known as a foodstuff in Indonesia and India. Seed production in these species can be very high, 200–700 kg per hectare. Depending upon the location and fertility of the soil, blossoms can last 8–10 weeks.
