Beautifully intricate and bright with its colour, Celosias have a chinese name which is read as ‘Feng Wei’ which translates to a Phoenix Tail. The mythological creature carries the belief of bringing harmony and prosperity.
Celosia plants require a minimum of eight hours of direct sunlight and soil that drains quickly. Poorly draining planting sites can cause them to develop root rot, evident by wilted or discolored leaves. Water Celosias as often as necessary to keep the soil consistently moist.
