''Celosia argentea'' var. ''cristata'', known as cockscomb, is the cristate or crested variety of the species ''Celosia argentea''. It was likely originally native to India, where it was saved from extinction in cultivation by the religious significance and superstitions attached to the variety by Indian, Burmese, and Chinese gardeners who planted it near temples.
