Official Name: Celosia argentea

General description: Celosia argentea, commonly known as the plumed cockscomb or silver cock's comb, is a herbaceous plant of tropical origin, and is known for its very bright colors. In India and China it is known as a troublesome weed. Celosia argentea is a tender annual that is often grown in gardens. It blooms in mid-spring to summer. It is propagated by seeds. The seeds are extremely small, up to 43,000 seeds per ounce.The flowers are hermaphrodites.

How to grow: 

  • Plant seedlings 8 inches apart in full sun and well-drained soil.
  • Plant seeds indoors six to eight weeks before your region's last frost, then plant outdoors 8 inches apart.
  • Keep the soil moist. Cockscomb does best in hot, slightly dry conditions, but will wilt if overly dry. Avoid wetting the flowers or leaves to prevent fungal diseases.
  • Fertilize every four weeks or so. Cockscomb benefits from regular fertilizing.
  • Pull out and discard in fall, once frost kills these plants.

Benefits: THE bright red cockscomb flower, or jiguan hua, is important in traditional Chinese medicine. According to the TCM bible "Ben Cao Gang Mu" ("Compendium of Materia Medica"), the flower is used to treat dysentery, bloody stools and uterine bleeding. Its seed is effective in cleaning the liver and improving eyesight.
As a "cold" TCM herb with a bitter taste, cockscomb flower can dispel inner heat, remove dampness and stop bleeding.
