Sakatas new Celosia: Dragon’s Breath

Captivating audiences in the industry with not only its unique combination of green-red foliage and blazing-red flowers, Sakata’s award-winning Celosia Dragon’s Breath also possesses the attributes of easy-to-grow, long-lasting shelf-life, great garden performance throughout the season, and the ability to sell-through at retail quickly. Dragon’s Breath has the ability to be sold in the prime bedding plant weeks, as well as a season-extender, and is poised to become one of the hottest new varieties on the market in the 2016 season.

‘Tis the Season for Dragon’s Breath Celosia. John and Janet Kister, owners of Sunlet Nursery, recently shared this photo taken at their Vista, California home in early December. The plant was from Sunlet’s October production and continues to flower well into December.

Growers like that Dragon’s Breath is quick, easy and economical to produce (for spring or fall) with minimal need for PGRs and fertilizer. Retailers like it for its adaptability in the garden – Dragon’s Breath is great in containers, beds and large landscapes. What’s more, Dragon’s Breath exhibits even more red foliage and flowers under adverse garden conditions like heat, humidity and infrequent watering – it’s perfect for the home gardener!

Up against some stiff competition, Dragon’s Breath proved to be the clear favorite, outshining its opponents with winning attributes like vibrant color, affinity for hot and humid conditions and striking, extra-large foliage and plumes.
