Cosmos, Picotee  Cosmos bipinnatus (75-90 days)  ORGANIC

This is a lovely strain we obtained from the collection of the late Al Vanet, pioneer organic seedsman.  Picotee grows quickly into a 4’ high bush with dozens of pale pink blooms whose petals are fringed with a bright magenta lining.  Very pretty in bouquets or as beneficial insect habitat hedges.   Tiger Swallowtail butterflies are particularly attracted to cosmos. Old-timers say that when interplanted with corn, it will deter corn earworms.  SSF
