Product Description

Cosmos Seeds - Versailles Tetra Red

Exceptionally easy to grow and tolerant of poor soil and hot/arid conditions, Versailles Tetra Red Cosmos is a great choice for large meadows that need some color, or roadside beautification projects. Seedlings are easy to transplant, if you so desire, but the easiest way to establish a Cosmos garden is just to let nature take its course, as the plants easily reseed if left alone.

    How to Plant & Grow Cosmos Flowers from Seeds

    This Mexico native is one of the simplest flowers to grow, and they are suitable for all zones. Since they reseed themselves easily, they make perfect additions to wildflower meadows or naturalized areas. Children will love planting their cosmos seeds and watching them grow taller than they are!

    Sow your Cosmos seeds in the full sun to partial shade. As cosmos flowers are very adaptable, they can thrive in average to poor soil quality, and they are tolerant to dry conditions. Scatter cosmos seeds outdoors after there is no longer a danger for frost. Seeds can be covered ¼ inch since they do not need light to germinate. Germination will usually occur in just 3 to 5 days, but it can take up to 2 weeks.

    Once started, cosmoses require virtually no attention. You can add a general purpose fertilizer once or twice a season. If a plant grows very tall and is not planted in a wind protected area, it may require staking. If you want blooms all summer long, dead head the old blooms.

Beautiful color

Really a great product - high rate of germination, durable plants with beautiful blossoms. Droop when dry or really stressed by heat - pop right back in the cool of the evening or after a water break.Some are topping out at about 4'5". Used in a wildflower mix.
