The cosmos, the German name of Cosmea bippinata, is an annual ornamental plant that requires little care. It blooms from around May, with a little help from you, into late fall if temperatures don't drop too low.

With simple measures, the flowering time of the jewelry basket can be significantly extended

Depending on the variety, the flower color varies from white to pink and red to shades of purple. The not hardy cosmos is ideal as a cut flower. If you regularly remove the withered flowers of your Cosmea, then it will continue to develop new buds until the first frost. However, you should plant your jewelry basket in a sunny location.

The essentials in brief:

  • Flowering time from May to autumn
  • Regular pruning promotes flowering
  • sparse or no flowering in shade
  • Flower colors: white, pink, red, purple
  • not hardy

tips

If you regularly cut off withered inflorescences on your Cosmea, your decorative basket will bloom again and again.
