Product Description

Cosmos ‘Xsenia’
Cosmos bipinnatus

These early to flower gems are a new favorite on the farm. Shades of magenta, purple and raspberry have an iridescent quality and age to an apricot cast. Blooms on ‘Xsenia’ are more petite than other cosmos varieties, and medium sized, healthy plants carry flowers on strong, upright stems. So many colors give the flowers a chameleon-like quality, and they mix well with a wide range of colors.

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.
