The peculiar-looking Cockscomb was so-named because the flower looks like the cockscomb on the rooster’s head. For others, the flower looks like the human brain. In China, it is known as Chi Kuan. This hardy plant is suitable both indoors and outdoors.  Although grown as ornamental plant, it is grown in many part of the world for their flowers and leaves which are eaten as vegetables. You decide whether this is similar to cockscomb or human brain.
