Add Kelos® Fire Yellow Celosia to your summer bedding plants and watch them light up the whole garden. The bright, clear yellow color is a great contrast for pastel flowers or other primary colors in your landscape. Large, feathery spikes of flowers rise above deep green foliage, giving this plant a substantial presence. Kelos® Fire Cockscombs are the perfect compact size for filling open spots in planters or replacing early spring blooming bulbs in a perennial border. 

Celosias are remarkably drought tolerant and grow as tender perennials in USDA zones 10-11. The large flower spikes are ideal for adding a thriller element to a planter with other seasonal plants. When planted in large groups, Kelos® Fire Yellow Cockscomb makes an impressive and ultra-low maintenance ground cover for hard-to-plant, sunny spots such as along a walkway or driveway. 

Kelos® Fire Yellow Celosia Care

Kelos® Kire Yellow Celosia is an ideal annual for plant-it-and-forget-it maintenance. Plant these bright and cheerful plants in at least 6 hours of direct sun and in well-draining soil that is moderately fertile. Deadhead spent flowers to keep plants neat while also encouraging more bud development. Fertilize with a liquid seaweed or fish feed every 2-3 weeks to maintain bright color and healthy foliage. 

Celosia blooms for months until the first freeze of the season. Container-grown plants can be moved indoors over the winter, but growth and blooming will slow. Bring plants indoors as the nighttime temperatures fall to 50 degrees F, and place them in the brightest part of your house. A south-facing window is ideal and may allow for more flowering late into the fall. Reduce watering to once every 7-10 days and stop fertilizing until the spring. In spring, cut back any dead top growth and place the plant back outside when nighttime temperatures are reliably over 50 degrees F. 

Kelos® Fire Yellow Celosia Spacing

The mounded and compact shape of Kelos® Cockscomb quickly grows to a mature height and width of 12-18 inches. Space multiple plants 12 inches apart, center on center, in a garden bed for a dense ground cover effect. Grow individual plants in containers with plenty of drainage and a diameter of at least 10 inches.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
