Cosmos - Wispy and Wonderful!

Cosmos
These lovely and delicate looking flowers will grace your garden, especially if planted "en masse". With the delicate, yet showy flowers, as well as their whispy leaves, they make a great addition to the back of any floral border and Cottage Garden.
They can get quite tall, up to four feet, in fact. Mine, shown here, are about three feet tall.
Colors range from white to purple, and they are so easy to grow.
These flowers are not very fussy and do not require much additional care.
Picking Cosmos encourages more flowering so by all means add these flowers to your vintage vases.
Cosmos appreciate a moist, well-drained soil with plenty of nutrients.
When siting your Cosmos know they're happiest in full sun, though often will do fine in partially sunny spots.
Cosmos may be started indoors from seed or directly sown after danger of frost has passed.
Harvest Cosmos flowers as they bloom and just before. They do not keep long but add a graceful touch to arrangements.
These Seed Packets, (and more) are available 
Thank you & Happy Gardening!
