Novel terracotta rose color.
Multicolored blooms appear luminous. Petals display a lovely rose color at the edges and flower center, with terracotta orange filling in the mid-petals. This brilliant color fades to a warm, antique rose as blooms mature. 2 1/2" single-flowered blooms display compact, tightly arranged/packed petals, giving the flowers an attractive, tidy appearance. More compact than our other cut-flower cosmos at 24–28" tall, but very worth growing for its beautiful color and tidy flowers. Plants produce stems long enough for short cuts (10–14"), especially if pinched when seedlings are 8–10" tall. A 2018 Fleuroselect Novelty Award winner. Ht. 24–28".
