Celosia, otherwise known as cockscomb, is a unique bloom that is in season throughout summer to late November. There are two common types of celosia, the Bombay celosia look like a velvet brain or a piece of coral and the crested celosia which has feathery plumes resembles fluffy grass. These blooms come in many hues such as orange, pink, hot pink, red, yellow, and chartreuse making it much easy to compliment your wedding theme. Cockscombs are great for summer weddings since it holds up in the heat well, but also great for the fall because of its deep saturated color and looks chic throughout your special day.
