Cupcake White Cosmos***Sold Out***

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. Pure white flowers.
