Celosia - Celosia cristata

Celosia cristata


Celosia is an annual plant belonging to the Celosia genus of the Amaranthaceae family. Native to tropical Africa and Latin America, it can grow to a height of up to 1 meter and is noted for its very bright colors. Crested cockscomb is given its name due to the unique and exotic shape of its flowers, whose tightly clustered blooms are said to resemble a rooster's comb.


In the Middle Ages, Celosia was considered a symbol of immortality. It was worn as a sign of mourning at funerals. In the past, it was used to treat shortsightedness and prevent liver disease.
