How to grow sea shell cosmos (Sea Shells)

Daisy-like cosmos flowers are easy to grow and versatile annuals. They can be used to fill in gaps in borders, grown as a standalone trait, or as part of a container display. The flowers attract a multitude of bees, butterflies and hoverflies and also make a good cut flower.

Cosmos ‘Sea Shells’ has interesting fluted petals curled around a tube like a shell. It makes a great planting partner for dark-flowered dahlias and chrysanthemums, and both its flowers and foliage lend themselves well to cut flower arrangements. For best results, Cosmos ‘Sea Shells’ grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Deadhead faded flowers to encourage repeat flowering.
