Celosia 'Orange Temple Bells' -for drying

I collected these Celosia cristata 'Orange Temple Bells' just before several rainy days. They are now hanging upside-down in the basement rafters drying. I wish I could keep the color as bright.

Once dried they turn a lovely antique red/pink shade, with a very slender stem and wonderful shape.


  1. Samuel loves these! "The flower you can pet!" he says.
