Xanthos Cosmos Seeds
$6.00 $0.00 ( / )

Xanthos Cosmos, (Greek for "golden-haired" or blonde) are a delicate yellow color with a green undertone. They look so sophisticated in a bouquet or mixed with pinks in the garden.

Oh, Cosmos, your moniker stands for the order and harmony of the universe, but we love your wild, care-free ways. Sweet little bursts of color, bobbing on wispy stems with lacy leaves. Wild, bushy growers, Cosmos are agreeable little guys; they love the sun and heat, don't mind when you forget to water them, and push up new flowers every darn day.

When to Plant

Spring, after last frost, or start inside 6 weeks earlier.

When to Expect Blooms

Blooms all summer.

Care Instructions

Tolerant of heat and poor soil, but water during dry spells. Pick flowers to encourage more. 

Extra Credit

When your plant is about 9-12" tall you can pinch off the main growth tip to encourage a bushier plant with more blooms.
