Cosmos Bright Lights Blend HEIRLOOM Seeds

Cosmos sulphureus

Item #1049

Bright Lights has very vibrant, bright, bold colors. 2½" flowers on 3' plants produce a cosmic beauty show from midsummer until first frost. Butterflies and hummingbirds love the nectar from the blossoms. Cosmos are a superb choice for wildflower and naturalized areas, as they are drought tolerant, and neglect is the kind of care they prefer! An excellent cut flower.
