can i cut back the celosis plant and will they grow again will the celosis grow again if i cut them back


Celosia can bloom from June until frost. During that time, deadheading your celosia will encourage new blooms. Remove the flowers as they start to turn brown and lose color. If you wait too long after this point, seed development starts and the plant puts its energy into that rather than new blooms. Deadheading is not necessary in fall, as the plant is not likely to bloom again.

You can also pinch back new growth to create a bushier plant at the early stages of growth.

Celosia are tender perennials (hardy only in Zones 10 - 12) and grown as annuals, that is to say they will die over the winter in the New York area.
