Product Description

Cosmos 'Xanthos'
Cosmos bipinnatus

A delicate pale yellow flower with green undertones, this dainty variety is petite in stature. Unique ruffled flowers have a subtle inner collar and pale throat, and blossoms have a dark yellow eye encircled by tiny fringed petals with pale serrated tips. Adds dimension to the cutting garden or flower border and one of the easiest and most productive cut flowers per square foot you can grow. 

Details:

Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75-90 days

How to Grow:
Start seed indoors in trays 4-6 weeks before last frost; transplant out after all danger of frost has passed. Cosmos can also be direct seeded once weather has warmed.

Harvesting/Vase Life:
Individual blooms don’t last long in the vase, about 4-6 days, but each stem is loaded with multiple blossoms that open over a period of a week. Harvest when flowers are just starting to unfurl, but haven’t fully opened in order to prevent insects from pollinating, which will help stretch the vase life by a few extra days. Flower preservative is recommended.
