Beautiful Flower, Deer Favorite
These flowers are beautiful, and I wish my experience had been better. I give them a five-star rating because, had I not run into outside issues, these would have been gorgeous. All my seeds sprouted and they were healthy.
It's worth noting that, at least in my area, the deer LOVED these flowers. As a result, I only ended up seeing about four bloom - and those were beautiful. I did end up having to stake them, and I think this was, in part, due to the fact they were so far apart from each other since the deer had eaten the others.

A Gorgeous Addition to your Flower Garden

I absolutely love white cosmos. This one did not disappoint. I direct-seeded, and covered them with cages after some bunnies chewed up a few of the seedlings. I had dozens and dozens of blooms. Definitely dead-head the spent blooms so it will bloom even more. The only thing is, mine grew bigger than I thought they would and I had only staked them with small bamboo stakes. It wasn't long before the bamboo split and the plants kind of fell over and grew sideways. I will definitely use metal next time and make sure the stakes are deep enough to hold up these hefty, prolific plants. Bees love them! Zone 6a - Central Illinois
