Cosmos – Bipinnatus Sensation Mix


Cosmos are native to Mexico and require full sun.  Cosmos work well as cut flowers and are good container plants.  The Cosmos seed is a popular source of food for birds.  Cosmos do not like extremely rich soil, if fertilized they will often grow too tall and not be able to stabilize themselves.  Planting Cosmos and watering them until they are established will yield the highest quality plant.  Once they are established, they do not need nearly as much water.  These flowers thrive in warm weather and in turn do not tolerate cold or wintry climates.

The broadcast rate for seeding is 60 – 75 pounds per acre.

The seed drill rate for seeding in rows is 30 pounds per acre.
