Organic Diablo Cosmos
4′ tall | 65-70 days to harvest | Cosmos sulphureus
HEIRLOOM If you’re looking for a ridiculously easy flower to grow, you’ve found it! Diablo practically thrives on neglect, growing stately and self-sufficient in virtually any soil. Her neon tangerine blooms attract multitudes of beneficial pollinators, including Monarchs and hummingbirds. Cosmos seeds are easy to collect with plenty to share, so you’ll enjoy her for years if not generations to come! Watching her ocean of orange sway in the summer breeze never gets old.
Also a fabulous dye plant, her brilliant petals are also delicious tossed on salads, cakes & sushi.
At Fruition, we sow cosmos indoors in soil blocks 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost, though you can easily direct sow cosmos after final frost, as well.
