Grower Information:

Unique, bold color that is sure to catch the consumer’s eye! Good all-season garden performance. After years of trialing to ensure ease of production, Twisted truly offers a fine complement to Intenz™ Celosia for both pot plant and garden programs. Its bold cristata blooms attract attention because of their unique, touchable form and texture. Excellent for Fall programs.

Celosia ‘Intenz’ is a plant which has been shown to have massive gardener and consumer interest! The rich magenta purple color is a distinct color and the bloom almost feels like a strawflower to
the touch.
Celosia ‘Intenz’ is a plant which can be grown for multiple markets. If finishing before the end of May, ‘Intenz’ can be grown without Blackcloth –an exciting extension for this plant. This provides a great opportunity to use ‘Intenz’ for container programs! Celosia ‘Intenz’ has already been grown in a wide range of containers and markets. It has been sold
as a summer flowering pot plant (best grown using Blackcloth) and in Fall programs to complement mums and asters. In the Fall we have seen ‘Intenz’ used as both solo plants and for use in combination planters.
The plumed flowers are an elegant, rich magentapurple. Celosia ‘Intenz’ has outstanding color retention! Even in a garden setting in full sun!
The foliage is medium green and is often highlighted with attractive burgundy markings.
Celosia ‘Intenz’ has a semi-upright growth habit and requires a ‘hard’  pinch as shown in the pictures to the right. It would be typical to have 6
to 8 leaves remaining below the pinch. Only one pinch is required. The pinch promotes branching and creates a well-branched plant with a better habit than other celosia on the market.
Growth Regulators
B-9 (Alar) is typically used at 2,500 ppm to assist in minimizing internode stretch. The first application should be made approximately 2
weeks after the pinch, when new shoots are about 1½ -inches in length. Then spray once a week for about 3 weeks. Bonzi drench at 1 to 2
ppm has also shown to be effective.
