Cosmos, “Bright Lights Blend” Seeds
Bright Lights is a cosmic beauty show from midsummer until first frost. Vibrant, bold, 2 ½” flowers on 36″ plants attract butterflies and hummingbirds that flock to the nectar from the blossoms. Cosmos are a superb choice for wildflower and naturalized areas, as they are drought tolerant, and neglect is the kind of care they prefer! An excellent cut flower.
