Cosmos Pinkie has large 3 - 4 inch blooms of rosy pink. They create a soft, cloud-like display and make a wonderful backdrop for lower growing flowers in front. These flowers attract butterflies and bees, and they are such a rewarding flower to grow, requiring little care.
Many gardeners call these flowers Mexican Asters, and they do well in hot, desert type areas but easily adapt to many conditions and thrive. Cosmos Mexican Asters are known as excellent cut flowers with a vase life of 7 - 10 days. Cut the blooms in the early morning hours, and select stems with flowers that have just opened. Remove the leaves below the water line, and enjoy a beautiful bouquet!
How to grow Cosmos from flower seeds: Directly sow the flower seeds into prepared soil after danger of frost has passed. Scatter Cosmos seeds onto the prepared soil and lightly rake the soil over the seeds at a depth of 1/16 inch. Keep the flower seed moist until germination. The plants perform well even when crowded.
