Cosmos, Picotee (Cosmos Bipinnatus Sensation) - 100 Seeds

$1.95 $3.90
What incredible grace and beauty these flowers bring to the flower border or garden. They are so easy to grow from Cosmos seeds, and they are a great flower seed to start with if you are a novice at gardening. This is a hybrid of wild Cosmos, and it features 3 inch pure white flowers with each petal edged with shades of rosy-red. The foliage is fern-like and lacy adding even more charm to this enchanting flower.

Originally, Cosmos came from wildflowers, of course, and are native to our own southwest and more commonly, Mexico. These annuals are also know as Mexican Asters. They do well in hot, desert type areas, but they easily adapt to many conditions and thrive. They will provide the best blooms with moderate amounts of water. Do not over fertilize the plants as this will decrease the amount of blooms. They will self-sow their own flower seeds for a new display next season.

Planting Instructions:
In early spring or after the last frost, scatter the Cosmos Bipinnatus dazzler seeds on the surface of loose soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination, which should take place within 10-20 days at soil temperatures from 65-75 degrees F. Cooler soil temperatures may delay germination. Seedlings do not need to be thinned, but can be transplanted if they appear too crowded. Since these Cosmos Bipinnatus dazzler seeds germinate quickly in warm soil, they can be sown at any time before midsummer for another crop of flowers. To start the seed indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring; keep the soil evenly moist and at a temperature of 70-75 degrees F until germination. When there is no chance of frost, transplant them outdoors.
