No wildflower meadow is complete without Cosmos, and the good news is every wildflower meadow in the country can enjoy Wild Cosmos Sensation! Extremely versatile, adaptable and easy to grow, this mix of pretty pinks and whites will re-seed for years of color! The plants grow 48" to 54" high. Single flowers, 3-4" across, in lavender, pink, magenta, and white. An AAS winner.
Full Sun, extremely drought tolerant once established.
Sow your Cosmos seeds in the full sun to partial shade. Cosmos are very adaptable, they can thrive in average to poor soil. Scatter cosmos seeds outdoors after there is no longer a danger of frost. Seeds can be covered ¼ inch since they do not need light to germinate. Germination will usually occur in just 3 to 5 days, but it can take up to 2 weeks.
Once started, cosmoses require virtually no attention. You can add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a season. If a plant grows very tall and is not planted in a wind protected area, it may require staking. If you want blooms all summer long, dead head the old blooms.
4 grams per seed packet. Will cover approximately 250 SF.
