Cosmos bipinnatus - Cosmos 'Sea Shells'

This listing is for 200 seeds of this annual cottage garden favourite.

Cosmos bipinnatus, commonly called the garden cosmos or Mexican aster, is a medium-sized flowering herbaceous plant native to Mexico. The species and its varieties and cultivars are popular as an ornamental plant in temperate climate gardens. It can also be found in natural areas in much of North America.

Cosmos bipinnatus is considered a half-hardy annual, although plants may reappear via self-sowing for several years. The plant height varies from 2–4 ft (0.61–1.22 m). The cultivated varieties appear in shades of pink and purple as well as white. Its foliage is finely cut into threadlike segments. When flowering, the plant can become top heavy. This problem is alleviated when grown in groups, as the bipinnate leaves interlock, and the colony supports itself This particular cultivar has petals which form tubes as the edge curl in. The effect is very striking, lending an almost two tone colour effect to the pink flowers.

Full instructions for growing all annuals can be found at this link.
