Versailles Tetra Red Cosmos is an easy to grow and maintain open pollinated variety, a fast growing choice, perfect for large fields that need some color.
The Mexico native Cosmos is one of the easiest flowers to grow, suitable for all zones.
Cosmos flowers are extremely adaptable, they can thrive in average to poor soil quality, and are tolerant to dry conditions.
Versailles Tetra Red has an extended bloom time and attracts pollinators.
Once planted, cosmoses require virtually no attention.
If you want blooms all summer long, deadheading the old flowering will help.
They make a nice cut flower with a vase life of 5-7 days.

They all came up looking good.
Beautiful and so easy to grow!
I planted these seeds in three different gardens. They take about 3 weeks to blossom.
Planted seeds in March; germination only fair, perhaps weather related. They started blooming in June; full of bright red flowers ; very pretty in July.
I planted the seed as soon as the soil was warm enough and they are already coming up strong.
