Detailed Product Info

The ferny foliage, pastels hues, and whimsical tubular petals run imaginations wild in the wonders of the universe. Lean in close and you just might hear the ocean! Petals in shades of pink, cream, and white curl into a sea-shell shaped tubes. Grows very bushy and tall; perfect in corners or middle placement in gardens. Easy to grow and very nice, though short-lived as a cut flower. A well-loved variety among pollinators.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, or direct sow into prepared garden beds after threat of frost has passed. Seashells Cosmos are robust and can reach 60" in height. Choose an area in full sun where they have enough room to bush out. Cut flowers or deadhead spent blooms to encourage more blooms. A great filler in cut flower arrangements.
