Floriosa Celosia

Floriosa Celosia
Provides a high-quality, uniform product. Flowers from April as a cheerful Spring bloomer to October as a rewarding Fall décor program in pots on balconies or in gardens. If finishing before the end of May, Floriosa will require black cloth – an exciting extension for this plant. This provides a great opportunity to use Floriosa for container programs paired well with other colors or with the Twisted or Intenz Celosia programs!
