Cosmea Seeds - Rubies in Sunshine

Cosmos

After the popularity of the first true yellow cosmos, we have found you an unusual yet striking combination of the delicate yellow cosmos Xanthos with a contrasting almost red/pink cosmos called 'Rubinato'. We love how the two varieties look so outstanding together, just like rubys glistening in the bright sunshine. Flowers July-mid October. Height 50-60cm (20-24"). HHA - Half hardy annual. The mix contains approximately 50% of each variety.

An economical choice to fill large borders. Big flowers are borne above pretty fern-like foliage.

Sow April-May 6mm (¼") deep direct into finely raked, moist, warm soil where the plants are to flower and rake the seed in gently. Germination usually 7-14 days. For earlier flowering, sow February/March 3mm (1⁄8") deep into good quality compost and place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 18-21°C (65-70°F) to germinate. Space seedlings to 5cm (2") apart and grow on. Plant out 8-12cm (20-30") apart in a sunny position end of May. May also be sown in early autumn for early flowering next summer.

Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to butterflies and bees. Suitable for cutting. Prefers full sun or partial shade. Pinch the initial growth to encourage a bushy plant habit.
