Saw this plant outside a Thai restaurant in Atlanta in October. I’d like to have it identified and information on where I could obtain one like it to own for my home either potted or planted.

    It looks like an amaranth, but I’m not sure.

    Looks like a type of Celosia. Had some in my garden but didn’t stay warm long enough to flower completely. Beautiful!!!!!

    My Dad had these. They grew to about 4 feet, had blooms that look like velvet. He called them Princess Feathers. They are a celosia, only larger. Beautiful when i bloom, I have seeds I plant in the spring
