It looks like Celosia plumosa, a common annual sold at most garden centers in the spring...It could be a variety called argentea...Type Celosia plumosa into your search engine and compare the pictures to your plant...
They do well in morning sun to full sun...They will tolerate heat...They don't do well in shade...
They are very colorful and will last all summer...Periodic dead-heading (removal of spent flowers) is usually necessary to keep them looking beautiful...
Enjoy them...
