They like the shorter days of fall and will often bloom even stronger than they do in the summer.The Bright Lights Blend Cosmos prefer full sun but they can withstand a little shade. They will thrive in average garden soils. Do not over fertilize or over water. Plant this Cosmos in the spring after the last average frost date. They are excellent colorful bedding plants for low maintenance, dry areas and are great for cut flowers. They attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
