Intenz Classic celosia is the latest Louisiana Super Plant – chosen for its beauty and its ability to thrive in Louisiana gardens. On a Youtube ‘Get It Growing’ video [see right sidebar] LSU AgCenter horticulturist Dan Gill explains how to care for this small celosia that puts on a big show of purple color.
Reliable plants
Each spring and fall the LSU AgCenter from the Louisiana State University (US) announces a new list of plants deemed worthy to be Louisiana Super Plants. These are reliable and beautiful plants selected for superior performance under Louisiana growing conditions.
The Celosia Intenz series is developed by Dutch breeder Floritec and includes several colours such as Intenz Improved, Intenz Candy Pink, Intenz Dark Purple, Intenz White Cream and Intenz Lipstick.
