Cockscomb Crested flowers are also known as Celosia and Woolflowers. The word Cockscomb comes from their appearance that resembles a rooster’s comb. Even though Cockscomb flowers are beautiful to look at, they are also known as a nutritious leafy vegetable. These edible, ornamental flowering plants grow in many different vibrant colors. They don’t need a lot of attention and they reseed themselves and come up sporadically in their immediate areas.
