(Cosmos bipinnatus)
EXCLUSIVE – These easy-care plants grow just under 2 feet tall with branching, many budded stems above a cloud of feathery, fine-cut foliage. Their satiny textured, 2 to 3 inch, daisy-shaped blossoms have perfect snow white petals and sunny gold centers. These fast growing, joyous flowers bloom non-stop, providing graceful sprays of silky white flowers for country-style bouquets. The dancing blossoms fill garden beds and patio pots to beckon butterflies all summer long.

TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep, 1 to 2 inches apart in a sunny location in well-worked garden soil once danger of frost is past. Keep seed bed moist. Seedlings emerge in 7 to 10 days. Keep well weeded and watered while plants are young; mature cosmos can handle hot and dry conditions.

 

TO START EARLY INDOORS

Sow seeds 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix, 4 to 6 weeks before last expected frost. Cover 1/2 inch deep, keep moist and provide a good light source. Plant outdoors once weather warms up after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space 6 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.

 

GROWING NOTES

These free flowering summer bloomers produce reliably in all soil types and can be sown several times through early July for a succession of flowers. Cutting generous bouquets actually prolongs the blooming season. Replant a spent spring flower bed with satiny Snow Sonata, deep indigo Royal Ensign bush morning glories and sparkling Signet Marigolds for a summer showing to shine until frost.
