Her cosmos grows quickly and blooms heavily with many different colors. The variety is quick to grow and is used to the short summers we have.
This year I wanted to try a different and a bit shorter variety of cosmos. So I picked a dwarf variety of cosmos called Sonata Pink Blush.
I have to admit that it is no match to my mom’s. For Sonata series our summer is a bit too short. The blooming starts mid-August which too late for my taste. Compared to my mom’s cosmos which starts to bloom already in July.
Though Pink Blush is beautiful. Green with glorious pink flowers. I guess it would just need a warmer summer.
PS. Bough the seeds from http://www.swallowtailgardenseeds.com and was happy with the quality and the delivery.
