Product Details

An out-of-this-world color of cosmos! This fairly new, yellow beauty (xantho means "yellow" in Greek) won the Fleuroselect Novelty, and Gold Medal awards in 2016. Not only is the color unique, the plants are early to flower, well-branched, and shorter, making them an excellent choice for containers or borders. Cosmos are drought tolerant, practically care free, attract pollinators, and make a nice addition to a cut-flower bouquet.
