Cosmos - Sunset Yellow (Cosmos Bipannatus) Heirloom Variety Cosmos Soft Yellow Flowers

Gorgeous subtle pale yellow single blooms with a solid yellow center - perfect for pollinators!
This variety boasts huge airy single blooms in a washed yellow, a white center ring and a yellow center with typical cosmos airy foliage. Blooms summer to frost.
