This new farm favorite has deep mahogany flowers with delicate white striping. Tall and dramatic, this variety churns out armloads of long stems that are perfect for bouquets and received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. Of all the annual plants you can grow in your cutting garden, few are more productive per square foot than cosmos. The more you cut, the more they bloom.
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 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.
