Sea Shells Cosmos Mix
Delivering multitudes of open-petalled flowers in shades of pink, red, and white, this mixture produces bright, colorful blooms on tall stems with the ferny foliage typically associated with cosmos. They are eyecatching in the garden and in arrangements and are very easy to grow from seed.
- Half-hardy annual plants grow to 4-5 feet tall
- Easy to grow from seed

I love these Cosmos for the beautiful shades of color and the unique petals. They really stand out in a bouquet.
So easy to grow via indoor transplant and direct sow. Love the shape and color variety. The bees enjoyed it too!
Slow Start, Great Finish
I planted these on June 1 in Northern Virginia. They were slow to germinate, and slow to grow through most of July, and then suddenly in August they grew like crazy. Now in late September they are absolutely beautiful. They are 4 to 5 feet tall and some have needed staking because of our windy conditions. I wonder if I got the right variety of seed as my flowers look like regular blooms, not tubular.
