All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2000

A mass planting of Cosmic Orange Cosmos, blazing in the summer sun amid the fluttering of butterflies, is an unforgettable sight. With greater color and more vigor than most of this very colorful and vigorous family, the Cosmic series stands out as a bedding and border treasure no garden should be without. Masses of 2-inch double and semi-double blooms arise all summer long on well-branched 12- to 22-inch plants. Heat- and pest-resistant, Cosmic thrives on neglect, spreading 12 to 17 inches wide even in poor, dry soils. Months of joy in the garden from this stunning AAS Winner.

Like all cosmos, this charming variety thrives in the sunny garden, drawing butterflies and compliments by the dozen. Simply direct sow the seeds wherever you'd like lots of quick, long-lasting color. 2½ months later the plants are in full bloom. The flowers are great in vases too, keeping their color and holding up their heads over a long period. And the plants will thrive even in poor dry soils, making them ideal for blazing-hot trouble spots as well as beds, borders, and walkways.

A favorite annual

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This flower has it all....easy to grow from seed, striking color (especially when grouped with blue or violet flowers), drought tolerant, long lasting. I will always have these in my garden.

Great Plant

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Started Cosmos "Cosmic" Orange this year from seed to fill in some holes in my butterfly garden. Wonderful plant! Mine have grown to about 15" - 20" tall and 12" - 15" wide and are covered in blooms. The color has a great "throw" and can be seen from anywhere in the yard! After their first (very prolific!) bloom, they started to "stall" a bit. I deadheaded them, gave some liquid fertilizer, and in a week or two they were blooming well again. These are planted in the North Dallas, TX area, zone 7b. Highly recommended. Great with "Cosmic" Yellow.

I bought a large selection last winter so I'll be providing several reviews this season: cosmic orange was a sturdy little plant that tolerates heat and sun alright, the orange is bright. no biodome needed, direct sow works fine. nice

10 stars!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This flower is stunningly gorgeous. It has eye-catching color and looks spectacular next to purple hued flowers. It germinated well and has held out well in dry conditions.
