Woolflower aka Celosia!

Celosia flowers, also called woolflowers or cockscombs, have unusual flowers that can bloom up to 10 weeks. These flowers can have red, pink, purple, gold or bicoloured blooms.  When many celosia flower blooms are next to each other, they collectively resemble fire, which is why the name Celosia, meaning burning in Greek, was chosen. The common name of cockscomb comes from the bloom's resemblance to a rooster's comb.  Celosia flowers also look great in vases and bouquets, so you can bring their beauty indoors.
