Celosia argentea can be divided into three groups, based on the flowertype. All three Celosia types exist in a compact form for pot or garden purposes, as well as in growing higher up for cut flower production or background planting in gardens.

The plumosa group:

This type makes a lot of thin feathers together forming a plume.

The spicata group:

A type of Celosia forming spears / needles, in the culture varieties in a bunch. In some parts of the world the wild spicata form is called “Wheat Celosia”, because they don’t have a bunch and only a single and stretched tail.
