For Facebook/Website/Newsletters: We are suckers for great color – and Celosia Intenz has color to spare – flower color and foliage colors. Flower color shifts depending on the light – a hot pink with purple/ tones and the bright green leaves have large purple centers as they develop.
What is cool about Celosia Intenz is its versatility. We like it on a patio table in a small pot, we like it in a large patio pot as a ‘Filler’ plant (although it is almost tall enough to be a ‘Thriller’) and it looks gets fine as a part of a mixed basket or in landscape bed in a cluster. It is the flower color and flower form that makes Intenz so unusual – so put the plant up close where you can see it.
Not often we recommend a bedding plant annual to be used as ‘potted plant’ but Intenz is great looking in a small pot – so enjoy indoors for a few days before you plant outdoors or plant it in a decorative pot and display Intenz on your patio table.
Not a big grower – gets about 15-18” tall and a spread of around a foot. If you use as a landscape plant put Intenz together in cluster of 3-5 plants to get enough bang. Foliage has some purple blotches on bright green leaves for an attractive plant in every way.
