Cosmos Bright Lights Mix is an outstanding blend of 5-8 cm yellow, orange, gold and scarlet flowers that occur during spring & summer in most Australian states and winter in northern states of Australia.
Harvest the blooms in the early morning, selecting stems with flowers that have just opened.

Cosmos are suitable for beds and borders and the pollinator garden where it attracts birds, butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects.
Popular as cut flowers.
The plants thrive on neglect and re-seed themselves quickly making them an excellent choice for wildflower meadows or naturalising areas.

COSMOS sulphureus originates from the wildflower meadows of Mexico, Central America, and northern South America and have become naturalized in other parts of North and South America as well as in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
