Bright Lights Cosmos | Cosmos sulphureus | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom
Bright Lights is a cosmic beauty show from midsummer until the first frost. Vibrant, bold, 2 1/2″ flowers on 36″ plants attract butterflies and hummingbirds that 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! Sprinkle the pretty, edible petals to add a bit of zest to salads or cold meals. An excellent cut flower, too.
Companion plants: Tomato, Beets, Cucumber, Legumes, Squash.
Planting tip: Sow seeds indoors early spring or direct sow outside when all dangers of frost have passed.
