Description

Butterfly Cosmos - Little Ladybirds -Cosmos sulphureus

Annual - These beautifully different Little Ladybird Cosmos are carefree bloomers with jaunty, sparkling, semi-double flowers on short, open branching plants that spread as wide as they are tall.

No pastels here, just warm, sunny colors on pretty plants that attract butterflies like magnets and fill patio containers and summer beds with cheerful, season-long charm.
