I bought this in M'sons as it just appealed to me but as usual the label just said 'flowering house plant'.

I'm sure you know what it's called ... could you fill me in please? How much effort would it be for them to put the name on the label??!!




I think it might be a Celosia, but I cant tell you anything more about it.!!

Celosia it is & very nice too, not hardy mind.

Thanks both ... I'll keep it in a mildly warm room ... our electricity bill was horrendous last winter so it'll be chilly in the living room this year!!

Just remember that it needs lots of sun to keep blooming, and regular feeding. It's not really a houseplant, but a tropical annual, so it will be hard to keep alive more than a few months--usually sold as a "living bouquet".

Thanks Tugbrethil ... I'll do my best to keep it going!
