Xanthos Cosmos Seeds

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.
