celosia, pinkish purple.

We planted 6 celosia in a row as companions to marigolds, zinnias and kangkong, sharing the same flower bed. Kangkong was the first to grow and pulled out as veggie. Zinnias in such tight space seemed to flower early and died in chorus. 

Now celosia is taking prominence growing to a height of 5 feet, with long beautiful pinkish purple flowers. Marigolds just started flowering.

  2. They look so pretty in a group. I've only seen Celosia cristata and Celosia argentea before, but not this.

    1. Pokok ni tak banyak ragam... tabur je benih, dating musim hujan benih akan bercambah.
