I love watching these colorful and dainty flowers sway in the breeze! The butterflies and bees are always drawn to them and they add amazing and delicate color to the garden. They grow fairly quickly and do well in Florida's summer heat.

I love this cosmos variety - the various colors are all so pretty and bright with the yellow contrasting center - the foliage is wonderful in arrangements -I won a blue ribbon for these too! They reseed themselves - the plants are as tall as I am, covered with flowers! I've found big fluffy bumblebees just snoozing on the flowers - they love them too!

I recently purchased two packs (1 gram each) of the Sensation Blend Cosmos. According to the Botanical Interests website, they should have approximately 50 seeds per pack. One pack had 26 and the other had 22. So plan accordingly. I will say, I've had good germination so far.
