Cosmos (Cosmos ‘Sweet Kisses’)大波斯菊 ‘甜蜜香吻’

Cosmos (Cosmos ‘Sweet Kisses’)大波斯菊 ‘甜蜜香吻’

Cosmos (Cosmos ‘Sweet Kisses’) seed packet and seeds. 大波斯菊 ‘甜蜜香吻’的種子包與種子.

New variety!  Just purchased this seed packet.  Love its semi-double, cute color!  This annual is very easy to grow from seeds.  According to the past experience, sometimes the seed packet did not always come true as exactly the same flower shape and color as picture shown.  So, we will see!   The mature height says 3′ tall on the seed packet info.  We will see about that later on, too.  Because the past experience often shown the plants are taller they are supposed to be. 😦    Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location. Long blooming time!  Good for cut flower!  Flowers attract bees, butterflies and birds.   Self-seeds easily.  Drought tolerant.  The gold finches here really enjoy feed on cosmos seeds in fall.

新品種!  價格在這種種子或一年生草花種子包算是高價的.   但是它半重瓣的花形,甜美的花色倒是很迷人!   就買來試試看到時開花的花形花色會不會跟種子包花圖一樣基因穩定? 種子包上說成熟株高3呎,但是過去的經驗通常是比所說的要高出許多,所以等待以後開花後來驗證. 容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照處. 它花期很長! 適合切花,剛開時剪下到凋謝約10-15天.  花頗吸引蜂蝶與鳥類. 容易自行落子繁殖. 耐旱. 這邊的北美金翅雀很喜歡吃它的種子.
