Celosia First Flame™ Purple


Seed supplied as: Pelleted.
PanAmerican Seed offers you two distinctive types of C. plumosa – our shorter Ice Cream series and mid-height First Flame series – to create a winning lineup that meets your bedding and landscape celosia needs.

Plug crop time: 3 to 4 weeks
Transplant to finish: 8 to 10 weeks
  • Excellent, brightly coloured Summer crop finishes 10 to 14 days earlier than competing varieties to reduce production costs. 
  • Branches like a regular C. plumosa to produce full blooms. 
  • Uniform across all colours for a fuller look in containers. 
  • Ideal for Asian and southern markets. 
  • Makes a great border plant; also good in containers.

Unique colour to this type of celosia. About 1 week earlier to flower, with a thicker plume compared to First Flame Red, Yellow and Scarlet. Non-fading in high light/high heat.
