My friend Linda from Kansas sent me some seeds from a plant that her father grew over 25 years ago, he has been passed on for that long and she reports that for as long as she can remember he had this flower in his garden. It is a red celosia and I was so happy when the seeds she sent me sprouted. Here they are growing in the round pot and to the right you can see 13 of the little plants in the ground. Hoping for the most spectular plants from these seeds. To have such a heirloom plant growing is such a honor.
