An AVF original, 'Coral Garden' represents the very first release from our breeding efforts. Coral coloured blooms will undoubtedly add colour and texture to the garden or vase. This celosia is an autumn blooming variety. Here in zone 5, the plants begin blooming mid to late august, and we harvest stems throughout September, and into October, or until first frost (typically late October in our zone). The season pairs perfectly with dahlia season. An unusual colour in the autumn garden.
