A capriola is a "playful leap," and no name could suit this award-winning Cosmos better. Every 3-inch bloom sports 3 bright colors and a pollinator appeal so strong that you might have to get out the butterfly identification book to spot the new species winging their way into your garden! The flowers continue for months, and then they drop their seeds into the soil for another year of beauty!

Capriola is super easy to grow and quick to bloom. Unlike the older varieties, it's pretty compact, reaching just 2 feet high and about 18 inches wide. The flowers appear on long stems above finely cut, ferny foliage that looks good even when not in bloom. And all this annual asks is sunshine and good soil drainage to bloom from early summer through early fall.

Capriola was introduced in Europe, where it promptly won a Fleuroselect Novelty Award. It's open-pollinated, so you can save the seeds for sowing next spring, or simply let the final flowers dry out on the plants in autumn, scattering their seeds where they will. Either way, there will be more Capriolas in your future -- and you will be so glad! Try this plant in large containers, in dry-soil areas, and as part of the wildflower garden. It germinates in a snap and begins blooming before most other Cosmos have budded out. An absolute must-have! Pkt is 25 seeds.
