Cosmos Red crest is an outstanding cosmos 5-8 cm deep orange-red flowers that occur during spring & summer in most Australian states and winter in northern Australia.

Cosmos is excellent for cutting, bedding, or as an attractive pot plant for summer. It looks great when planted in meadows and cottage gardens.
Cosmos makes excellent cut flowers with a vase life of 5-7 days. Harvest the blooms in the early morning, selecting stems with just-opened flowers.

An excellent choice for low-maintenance gardens, these colourful bedding plants are great for cutting flowers and adding vibrant colour to any spring or summer garden.
Cosmos are a popular garden plant with many cultivars bred in every shade and colour.

As with all Cosmos, they thrive on neglect and re-seed themselves easily, making them a great choice for wildflower meadows or naturalised areas.

Adaptable to most well-drained garden soils in a sunny position. Tolerant of average soils.

Cosmos sulphureus originates from the wildflower meadows of Mexico, Central America, and northern South America and has become naturalised in other parts of North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

The best time of year to sow Cosmos seeds is mid-spring to mid-summer in cold zones.
In temperate zones, the best time is early spring to mid-summer. In tropical zones seed should be sown in the dry mid-Autumn to late winter is best.

  1. Best sown 6 mm directly where they are to grow.
  2. If sowing in trays transplant when large enough to handle.
  3. If mass planting as a meadow scatter seeds and rake over

Germination: 14-21 days at a soil temperature of 20-25°C
