Flowers for Fall

I am always so impressed with the grounds crew at this school, and the work that they put into making our campus beautiful. For the past week or so I have notices these vibrantly colorful flowers outside of the library and so I took this writing opportunity to snoop around and figure out what they were. Frankly enough, I used the power of the internet and my googling abilities to search, “colorful fuzzy flowers,” and was able to identify them through pictures online. I found out that this species is called Celosia, Plumed. They are annuals meaning that they are only alive for one growing season, and what makes them unique is their feathery and plumelike flowerheads which come in colors ranging from pink and red, to yellow or violet. Overall, they seem to be a nice bright addition to this constantly changing fall weather.
