Cosmos add a giant shout of color into the summer garden, are one of the absolute easiest flowers to grow, and bloom all summer. Cupcakes and Saucers Cosmos are such an interesting shape, each bloom is like a delicate sculpture. In this cheerful mix of pink and white blooms look like a cupcake wrapper, with a smaller saucer bloom inside. Whimsical and special, we are loving this new shape.
Planting conditions: Not too picky, tolerant of a variety of soil types, and happiest in full sun.
Care: Once they are happy and established in your garden, they are drought-tolerant, but will bloom more with more water.
Blooms: All summer. Deadhead the blooms regularly (meaning cut the flowers for bouquets, or if the flowers die on the plant cut them off) to encourage more blooms.
Self-seeding annual: Cosmos are annuals, meaning they die over the winter, but they self-seed so they will naturally come back the following year in your garden.
Ships: In the Spring, as a plant in a 2.75" diameter pot.
