NEW FOR 2022! This is a new cosmos from the breeders at Thompson and Morgan (UK), selected Flower of the Year for 2020. Yellow is a novel pigment in Cosmos bipinnatus (first appearing in variety ‘Xanthos’), and this is the first blending of yellow and pink into one flower. Color patterns vary from plant to plant, and with age of the flowers; from light yellow to apricot, often with pink-mauve centers that fade into the lemon background. These are generally more compact than most cosmos, growing from 24-30” tall. Space 12” apart. Transplanting recommended as early as possible in spring if longer stems are desired for cutting. Seed is apparently in high demand.
