Ratings & Reviews
Not as showy as I thought they would be
They grew very tall but little bloom this August. We live in zone 4.
A True Sensation
Spectacular! Planting these seeds was beyond easy. They have flourished without any attention from the gardener. My Cosmos are planted on a rocky slope behind the house. The soil is terrible there, and the rain is unpredictable. Nothing deters this plant! The flowers are magnificent and the stalks are pretty too. They are truly sensational!
We have been growing Sensation Mix Cosmos for over 35 years and it is a farm favorite that delights us and neighbors every year. 3ft + plants that we sow in thick long beds and they stay in bloom from August until heavy frosts. Bees love them also
