Lovely colors and OOF background - my guess is Astilbe.

I think you may be correct as the green leaves look quite similar from what I can remember.
I am also sure they were annuals not perennials....so, another positive for Celosia.

Thanks guys!

I remember these growing up in WV. One of my Mom's favorites. I wish I knew the name. This is stunning and such a rich color!
