Celosia is a variety of tropical friendly amaranth that we grow in our gardens for production of its showy, edible, variegated leaves and beautiful flower head. Amaranth is commonly grown throughout the world for its edible grain, and many Caribbean natives using the leaves as cooked greens in traditional dishes like the stewed green ‘callaloo’.  Celway Red is a celosia variety thats predominantly grown for its showy ornamental flower. Shimmering, deep magenta flower spikes grow on short andf compact plants. Upright, clean stems are easy to harvest. The more you cut the flowers from your plants the more they will produce and the stockier the plants will stay.
