The colorful "brainy" floral crests of crested cockscomb are commonly used in annual borders and containers and make great cut flowers. The Amigo Series plants are dwarf, bushy annuals to short-lived perennials. The leaves are bright green and the cultivar Amigo Mahogany Red’s are purple-red. Amigo Series flower heads are huge, bracted flower clusters of red, magenta, neon rose, scarlet and yellow. Plant these ornamentals in sites with full sun, and average, well drained soil. Their dried flower heads may be used in everlasting arrangements.
