Pollinators love this plant.  The flowers are a beautiful soft yellow that bloom all season long.  A newly developed variety from Van Hemert & Co, this flower gets it’s name from the Greek work for yellow.  It will come back every year if you let dead head flowers fall to the ground.

A lovely addition to a flower bed, Xanthos is a must!

Cosmos plants can withstand heat and drought conditions. As this is a tall cultivar it may need staking to prevent their thick, hollow stems from breaking due to heavy rain or wind. Pollinators love this plant.  The flowers can bloom twice in one season – at the beginning and at the end.

Diseases and pests: Gray mold
