Flower for the Day Celosia 9-28-16

Celosia are among my favorites  because of their color and the ease with which their seeds can be collected for next years growth. They are in the amaranth  family and their flower heads grow into several shapes. With fasciation* the heads are shaped like rooster coxcombs.

*Fasciation is a fusion of parts resulting in a flat ribbon like structure
