Your plant is Cockscomb or Amerath.
It’ll get top heavy as the heads have millions of tiny seeds it can grow as tall as anything but ususally only about waist high on most people.
There’s more colors than just red, and their height can vary.
Enjoy your plants, as the more sed you put down the greater the number, there’s little or no fragrence from the furry heads on the plants.
If you’re Jewish.

Thanks everyone for the replies.
Looking up the entry for Celosia cristata on the Plants for a Future website http://www.pfaf.org it tells me that the plant can be used as a vegetable (the young leaves, cooked) - though another report I’ve had says that the seeds also bear edible oil. In any case, it’s nice to know that our new ornamental is also useful - especially since my partner considers me to have a far too utilitarian attitude to the garden…
