Cup and Saucers Mix Cosmos

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.

Love these lovelies!

After they germinated, I had a little trouble with pests eating them, but the ones that made it are blooming beautifully. It will help them branch out if you pinch out the first bud, and makes a sturdier plant.

Cups & Saucers Cosmos

These are really pretty. I love the cup shape to them and like any other cosmos, really easy to grow. They’ve become a regular in my flower garden.

Fun and Easy to Grow

These flowers were so adorable and fun to grow! They really did look just like cupcake wrappers. I used mine primarily in floral arrangements as a fun eye catcher. The only thing is that I wished is that I would have planted even more!
