Cupcakes and Saucers Mix Cosmos Plants

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.

Cupcakes and Saucer Cosmos are such a cool shape, each bloom is like a delicate cupcake wrapper, with a small saucer inside. Whimsical and special, in white and power-pink.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms All summer!
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Happy enough in hot, dry, poor soil. Pick blooms 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

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • How do you ship the live plants and how long after I order them do the arrive?

    Hi there- the plants ship in clamshell containers to keep them safe in transit and should ship 3-5 days after you order at this point in the season.

  • Are these plants heirloom or hybrid?

    These are a new variety of Cosmos plants developed through breeding, definitely not an hierloom variety!
