Bedazzling Sulphur Cosmos, I find them to be profoundly beautiful having fallen in love with them in 2021 I went "All out" this year to bring them back.  The bees absolutely love them but then Bees are total flower-holics!  

Varietals are; plain vibrant orange, orange with brush stroke of deep orange and a delicate piquant yellow ( not shown well here) providing double and single blooms.  

Plant size varies, 60 to 152cm. Drought tolerant, though ultimately will give you so much more with regular watering.

I learnt a lesson this year trying to start seed early, which back fired,  filling me with utter fear that I might not entertain the same vibrant blooms for the summer of '22. So, sow in late April as light extends and soil temperatures increase for grand results

BB's latest sowing was outdoor in August in pots. Am watching with anticipation to see if they will grow up much more and flower to finish, as Septembers ( 2022) temperatures have currently dropped off into the abyss. Will share on instagram!

Plant at a minimum of 30 cm intervals, to give ample space for air flow and abundant branching.  Grows in any soil. 

For Dried Sulphur Cosmos blooms go here  pigment  is just incredible. 

Sold in packs of 100  think multiple sowing April onwards....

Grown & harvested in the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Channel Islands, GB.
