Cupcake Mix Cosmos

5

Cosmo bipinnatus

 

We hope this variety will dazzle you as much as it did us, it was our absolute favorite flower trial for 2017! First cosmo of its kind with petals that are fused together forming a cup, appearing like a graceful tulip. Cupcake was a true standout in our cottage style flower beds, blooming all season long, rain or shine and is so very lovely in a bouquet. White, pink and blush petals with single, double and semi double flowers. 

25 seeds

Everyone loves these!

These are really pretty and catch the eye of everyone who looks at an arrangement with them in it. Like all Cosmos, they do not last all that long once cut - 4-5 days or so. They are easy to grow and you don't need many plants in order to get lots of blooms.
