Comments:

'Fresh Look Gold' plants have bright golden plumes that remain colorful all season, not "browning" with maturity. Since the plumes remain attractive, there is no reason to deadhead and no pest problems are expected, so 'Fresh Look Gold' needs little maintenance in a sunny garden. It is an annual useful in formal or informal gardens, and has proved to be heat, humidity and rain tolerant in AAS Trials across North America. This celosia is one of the best annuals for season-long performance.

It's often hard to list definite sources. Ask for them at:
  • Online vegetable and flower seed websites
  • Mail order seed catalogs
  • Seed packets in retail stores
  • Or as bedding plants at garden centers
