& Maintenance Tips

Celosia prefers full sun but will handle a few hours of shade as well. It prefers average but well drained soil for it to thrive. For best results, don’t over-water and plant after last frost. Celosia does very well in Summer and warm weather climates. Just remember, plants aren’t as “drought tolerant” in baskets and containers!
