Cosmos Varieties

This was my second year growing Cosmos and I am hooked! This year I grew Double Click Bicolor Pink and Sensation Mix from Johnny’s Selected Seed. Next year I am definitely planting Double Click Cranberries because I love the look of the Double Clicks. I also will need to plant Bright Lights Mixed Colors from Burpee, I had grown them in 2015 but must have forgot this year.

These first pictures are from this weekend at Lauritzen Gardens. They had a small Cosmos field out front that was attracting a LOT of attention the day I visited.

I’m going to head out and collect some of the seeds from this year. I found this video that explains how to collect Cosmos seeds. Do you have any tips?

Do you have a favorite variety of Cosmos?
