EXCLUSIVE - Renee's custom blend of special cosmos dance and sway above lacy foliage. We’ve combined “Seashells,” with dainty tubular petals, “Psyche,” whose semi-double frilled blossoms are like softly ruffled crowns, and “Versailles,” the aristocratic florist cosmos with perfect form and rich color. Together they paint a joyous collage of apple blossom pink, deep magenta, soft rose and pure white. These easy-care lovelies bloom nonstop, providing armfuls of pretty flowers for romantic bouquets.(Cosmos bipinnatus)

Plant outdoors once weather warms up after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions. Thin or transplant 8 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle.
