Description:
These showy, colorful blossoms will have the neighbors talking. This easy-to-grow annual is shorter than the most Cosmos varieties, so it fits well in smaller spaces. Cosmos is great for butterfly gardens and cut flower gardens alike.

Also known as Mexican Asters, these flowers are native to Mexico. They will provide the best blooms with moderate amounts of water. Do not over fertilize the plants as this will decrease the amount of blooms. Butterflies and bees are very attracted to the large blooms, and they also will self-sow their own seeds for a new display next season.
