Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Celosia argentea, Linn. Taller than the above: lvs. shorter- stalked, narrower, 2-2 ½ in. long, 4-6 lines wide, linear-lanceolate, acute: spikes 1—4 in. long, erect or drooping, long-peduncled, pyramidal, or cylindrical. India.— This species is considered by Voss (in Vilmorin's Blumengartnerei) to be the original one from which the crested forms are derived. He makes 9 botanical forms, to one of which he refers C. cristata. The range of color is even greater in the feathered type than in the crested type. The spikes are very various in form and habit. Various forms are shown in Gn. 6, p. 513; 9, p. 149; 17, p. 331 (all as C. pyramidalis). R.H. 1857, p. 78, and 1890, p. 522 (as C. pyramidalis). CH
