Wedding Flower Friday: Luxurious and Bold Cockscomb Celosias

Posted by Azure on April 2nd, 2010
After featuring the rad tattooed/Superhero wedding yesterday, I was left with one big question mark over my head... What type of flowers made up the bride's stunning bridal bouquet??

Well, I did some digging, tweeting, and surfing, and it turns out that the deep fuchsia flowers that resembled a piece of coral are called Cockscomb (or Bombay) Celosias. Celosias are in season from summer until November, and I just love these for bridal bouquets, groom or groomsmen boutonnieres, and really, any floral arrangement for your wedding! They are so unique, lovely, and eye-catching! And you cannot beat the rich color and texture that celosias bring to the table!
