Grower Information:

Flowers from April as a cheerful Spring bloomer to October as a rewarding Fall décor program in pots on balconies or in gardens. It can be grown for multiple markets.

This provides a great opportunity to use in container programs paired with other colors or with the Twisted™ or Intenz™ Celosia programs!
