Single Packet of 400 or 7,000 Seeds
Grow Crazy Cosmos Mixture from fresh Cosmos bipinnatus / sulphureus flower seeds. Crazy Cosmos is a colorful mixture consisting of all sorts of colored cosmos flowers including pink, purple, white, yellow, orange and red. There are even a few Cosmos flowers that will be multicolored, or “bi-colored” such as the candy stripe variety. The plants, once established will raise to a varying height of about 18 to 60 inches tall. The plants themselves consist of one large stem that shoots straight up, displaying several smaller stems with branches of slender leaves. The flowers are roughly 2 inches in diameter and are at the very tops of the plants.
Cosmos flowers are grown as an annual flowering plant. Annuals such as the Cosmos flower will grow quickly from fresh annual flower seeds, blooming profusely through the summer months, up until the first killing frost. Cosmos flower seeds can be collected for resowing the following year and can also drop to the bare ground beneath through a natural process. The seeds can be long or short and are slender like a Marigold seed. They are anywhere from 1/4” to 1” inch in length and are very easily distributed into the garden.
Cosmos flowers are an excellent choice for borders, flower beds and in a natural setting. They can be combined with other varieties of wildflowers that grow to roughly the same height. Cosmos flowers are also best sown in masses as they tend to create bush like foliage.
