The bright and feisty ornamental celosia
Celosia are vibrant, bright, punchy flowers which have a great aesthetic. No calm shrinking violets these; the celosia knows just how great it is, and is determined that the world should do! Celosia – which are also referred to as woolflowers or cockscomb are ideal flowers to put in a cheerful bouquet overflowing with charm and colour. Birthdays, celebrations and annivesaries are just a few of the great reasons to pass a bunch of flame-shaped, attractive celosia someone's way.
Celosia hail originally from East Africa, where they are known by their Swahili name, mfungu. The English name for the comes from the Greek word kelos, which means 'burned' - referring to the attractive flame-like shape of the celosia flowers. As well as looking great, our friend the celosia has a whole range of non-ornamental uses, such as medicinal and culinary uses.
