Where art and horticulture meet.
Seeds: Deep pink crested celosia with green and orange foliage. This variety is very tall up to 6' in height and is plumed with bright magenta, chenille-like, crested inflorescences that are so vivid they appear to glow, especially at dusk.
Specific: Celosia argentea var. cristata.
Artist, Denise Seavey's fabric-like texture of the celosia is perfectly captured by this raw-edged applique panel, which is held together by free-motion quilting.
