This romantic new cosmos mix has won both the Royal Horticultural Award of Merit and a European Fleuroselect Novelty award. Velouette’s charming flowers bloom in intricate petal patterns of stripes, picotees and solids in shades of deep cranberry, antique rose, coral and white. The fast-growing plants reach 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet and bloom early with an exuberant abundance of dancing flowers. Flowers arrange themselves easily for sweetly casual bouquets. Pollinators, especially butterflies, seek out these flowers!

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 5 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 until ready to go outside. Plant outdoors once weather warms up after gradually acclimating seedlings to outdoor conditions.

 

THIN OR TRANSPLANT

Space 8 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.

 

GROWING NOTES

These free-flowering, long blooming summer flowers fill the garden with vibrant color, producing reliably in all soil types. Sow several times through June for a succession of fresh flowers. Cutting generous bouquets actually prolongs the blooming season. Velouette's flower colors blend together for bouquets that arrange themselves.
