Product Description

Cosmos 'Rubenza'
Cosmos bipinnatus

A dramatic addition to any cutting garden, these uncommon cosmos display a vibrant range of colors. The large single blooms open with deep ruby petals and then fade into shades of muddy rose and terracotta as they age. Cosmos are easy to grow, produce a profusion of blooms and are perfect for beginners.

Details:
Plant type: annual
Height: 36-42”
Site: full sun
Days to maturity: 75-90 days
Plant spacing: 12”
Pinch: when 12” tall
Approx seeds per packet: 50

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 buds are cracking, 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.
