Wildflower purists might not want this beauty in their meadow, but we've found thousands of our visitors demanded it. Cosmos "Picotee" is a hybrid of wild cosmos that has beautiful red edges on each petal. Yes, it's just as easy to grow and just as much at home in meadows as its wild cousins of solid color. This cosmos is magnificent, both in the garden, or in a vase. A great cut flower!

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
