Flowers Cosmos Cupcakes Blush

Cupcakes Blush

Cosmos Seed

Product ID: 3398

New! Novel cosmos resemble fluted cupcake wrappers.

Identical performance to Cupcakes Mix, but pale pink rather than a range of colors. As showy as Double Click with lighter-weight blooms held upright on stems. The light-colored, finely-pleated blooms float above the foliage, reminding us of Degas' paintings of ballerinas. A small percentage of flowers have lovely, tufted centers. Ht. 40-50". Avg. 4,000 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.

PLANT SPACING: 9-12". Wider spacing creates stronger, thicker stems.
