Beautiful bright golden blooms! Sulphur Cosmos, also known as Dwarf Lemon, Dwarf Gold and Orange Cosmos, is a favourite for flower-pressing crafts.

Cosmos that can be sown outside in early spring or after last frost, and is one of the best flowers for xeriscaping. This Cosmos variety features attractive finely-cut feathery apple green foliage and semi-double orangey yellow blooms. This variety blooms all summer long into the late fall.

Dwarf Gold Cosmos is also a great choice for mass plantings along walkways and at the front of borders. Cosmos is great for window boxes and container planting.
