Cosmos Lemonade

Cosmos Lemonade Fabulous pale yellow cosmos with striking central white eye. Our plant breeding team took a very bright yellow, but late-flowering Japanese cosmos variety and crossed it with earlier-flowering cosmos with better, shorter habits. The resulting delicate, subtle yellow blossoms of Cosmos ‘Lemonade’ are produced en masse throughout the summer on short, branching cosmos plants.  Fantastic for patio pots or as a robust and oh-so-floriferous border filler – its colouring and habit means that it combines well with most other plants in bedding or container displays. Cosmos ‘Lemonade’ also makes a great cut flower and looks stunning in a vase, either on its own or mixed in with other flowers.

Height: 60cm (24″). Spread: 40cm (16″).

How to Sow

Sow Cosmos seed from March to May at a depth of 3mm (1/8″) in a good quality seed compost, and cover the seeds with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 7-15 days.  When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7cm (3″) pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Cosmos plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun in any moist, well drained soil at a distance of 45cm (18″) apart. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem when transplanting to encourage stems to branch and produce more Cosmos flowers.
