Grown on the farm, we love this incredi- ble heirloom (1930) pollinator flower that attracts all sorts of insects. The flower is edible and will reseed itself. The original seeds are from Veseys Seeds, P.E.I.
Sow: Direct seed 1 week after last frost in well drained soil ¼’’ deep
Harvest: All season long during flowering. Leave some flower heads for re-seeding
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
