Neutral Kell On Dec 1, 2009, Kell from Northern California, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

The Fresh Look Celosia got their name from looking as "fresh" at the end of their flower cycle as when first planted. The colorful plumes do not fade with time.

This beautiful central plume is 4-4.5 inches long and 2-3 inches wide. From seed to flower is 110 days.

The Celosia Fresh Look Gold was a 2007 AAS Winner.
