Cosmos Sensation Mix - Bulk Pricing - Seeds & Bulbs
Cosmos thrives on neglect, and that makes this beautiful mix perfect for a meadow. It is also used in beds and borders and containers and makes a great cutflower. You'll get big 3" to 4" white, pink, rose and crimson flowers from summer until fall, and once established, Cosmos is drought tolerant -- another plus for wildflower or naturalized areas.
