Colorful and easy to grow, Cosmos ‘Double Click Mixed’ are bushy, half-hardy annuals boasting semi-double to double flowers, up to 3 in. across (7 cm), with ruffled petals in shades of rose, pink or white. Blooming for months from early summer to fall, the ravishing blossoms are borne atop tall, branching stems and float above the fine, feathery foliage. Fairly pest-free and low maintenance, add these pretty pompons to the landscape, and you will be rewarded with abundant butterflies. Double Click Series Mixed is ideal towards the back of mixed borders or in a row for cutting.

  • Grows up to 3-4 ft. tall (90-120 cm) and 20 in. wide (50 cm).
  • Performs best in full sun, in average, moist, well-drained soils.
  • Ideal addition to beds and borders, containers, cottage gardens, prairies and meadows, and cutting gardens.
  • keep an eye out for aphids, slugs, and gray molds.
  • Propagate by seeds.
  • Pinching off dead blossoms will promote continuous blooming. If the flower heads remain, the cosmos will self-seed, but will not become a nuisance.
  • Cosmos bipinnatus species is native to Mexico.
  • Find where this species is invasive in the United States.
  • Discover beautiful U.S. native plant alternatives.
