Benary Celosia Receives Texas Award

Celosia New Look from Benary has been named the latest Texas Superstar release based on its superior performance across the state, according to a Texas A&M AgriLife Research expert.

The New Look celosia variety was named a 2019 Texas Superstar plant by AgriLife Research, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas Tech University horticulturalists after years of field trials around the state.

This celosia was a hit among visitors at the annual East Texas Horticultural Field Day in Overton.  “This variety has been reliably tough in high temperatures,” Brent Pemberton said. “It can take whatever the Texas summer throws at it.”

“We have tested a lot of celosia over the years and this one continues to be the best,” he said. “It’s been around a long time, but sometimes you just have a plant in the garden year after year and might take it for granted. Then it catches your attention and you’re like, ‘Dang, that is a good plant’.”
