Cosmos bipinnatus. This novel Cosmos has petals that naturally curl like little rolled trumpets. Pink, red, lavender and white flowers surround pale gold centres. The ferny foliage from Sea Shells Mix cosmos seeds is excellent in flower arrangements, and the plant grows 1-1.6m (3-5′) tall and thrives on neglect, but deadheading will extend the flowering period. Attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies and other wild pollinators. Take advantage of its drought tolerance by using Sea Shells Mix Cosmos seeds in xeriscaping, and be sure to bring some inside to enjoy as cut flowers. Provide some stake support for this tall Cosmos variety if growing in windy garden areas.
