White Celosia spicata?

Chapel Hill, NC(Zone 7b)

Does anyone know where I can find seeds for a white C. spicata. I know it is in the Flamingo series, but don't remember the rest of the name. Those spicatas are so cool.

Thanks,
Clementine

I grew a very unusual pink/red one this year, I got labeled as 'Flamingo Feather'.>

Thank you, DMgardener. I know I can get seeds for Flamingo Feather from Johnny's Seeds, and possibly elsewhere too, but I saw the completely white one in a book and forgot to write down the name. Did you grow yours from seeds? Winter sown perhaps?

I hope someone else might chime in.

I just threw half a seed head in the ground in Early June and they were flowering like there was no tomorrow in just 2 months! LOL!!

I will try and find that White Celosia spicata...

And I will be looking too, and when I find it I will let you know.

Clementine, I have white that showed up among my Flamingo Feather reds, that reseed each year. I've been pilfering through my seeds, could have sworn I'd saved some from the white ones, but haven't run across them yet. If I do I'll let ya know and send you some.

Hey, sage, that is awesome. I'd love to have some. I'll see if I have something to trade you.
Thanks a bunch.

I'm still riffling through my seeds trying to find them, could have sworn I had saved some! The snow should be melting today (finally, above freezing for the first time this year!), and I'm going to see if any seed heads are still out there.

William Dam Seeds (www.damseeds.com) have Flamingo Feather which is a pink & white bi-colored plume. They list it as a Wheat Celosia. spicata type.

Haven't written in a long time, what with Christmas, sick, and lots of snow, cold and rain. I finally broke down and got seeds from Johnny's Seeds. They are WHEAT CELOSIA 'FLAMINGO FEATHER'. I'll be happy with them, the ones I saw in South Carolina were really outstanding (in more ways than one). I wonder whether I made a mistake when I thought that there was a purely white variety.

Thanks for thinking about this for me.

I have white, red and pink which reseeds each year. They are about 4 feet tall and are an insect magnet. Literally buzzing with swarms of bugs all day. For this reason it would be beneficial to plant them around the vegetables to draw in pollinators. I saved mixed seeds, so can offer them, but this year since I've joined Dave's I am going to do much more seed saving, and will save the separate colors.
