Native to Mexico, cosmos seeds can sprout and grow in the most unusual conditions. They are tolerant to drought and strong sun, which is why this flower stands strong if you forget to water it. Their simplicity and beauty is cherished around the world. Pollinators like hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies absolutely love their nectar. They can flourish in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 13, proving their adaptability and ease of growth.


For successful growth, planting cosmos seeds should be done directly into the garden, when danger of frost ends. Sow them about 1/4 inch deep, spacing them around 18 to 24 inches apart. Cosmos enjoy full sun, and direct sunlight. They usually germinate within 7 to 14 days. For longer blooming, stagger plantings every few weeks.


If there is one flower that doesn’t need much care, it’s this one. Cosmos flowers prefer drier conditions, making them perfect for gardeners looking for minimal upkeep. Detaching spent flowers can encourage blooming all through the season. Cosmos are typically resistant to pests. They are an ideal choice for organic gardening.
