Incredible! That's all we can say about this entirely different look for that old favorite, Cosmos bipinnatus. Instead of lying flat, the petals on Cupcakes Mix curve up and inward, creating a bowl or chalice look! And as if that weren't enough, most are double or semi-double, with a pinwheel pattern of smaller petals around the frilly yellow center of each bloom. There has never been anything like Cupcakes, and it's creating a sensation! No wonder it won a Fleuroselect Novelty Award in Europe!

This mix offers three vintage shades: pale lavender, soft pink, and creamy white. As the white blooms mature, they acquire pink tones; the lavender varies from lilac to mauve; and the pink can be several shades. In other words, you will grow a multi-hued bouquet with Cupcakes, the only constant being that the blooms will be cup-shaped, softly colored, and utterly beautiful!

The flowers begin in midsummer in most climates, arising on long, wiry stems that hold surprisingly well when the flowers are cut for the vase. Cosmos is a pollinator attractant too, so expect butterflies and bees to visit your Cupcakes all season! This cut-and-come-again variety rewards your prompt deadheading with new buds, and the show can continue well into fall in most climates. Just give Cupcakes Mix sunshine and well-drained soil; it will do the rest, reaching up to 4 feet high in full bloom, and spreading about 2 feet wide. Magnificent even in hot, dry, poor soil, Cupcakes is a scene-stealer in the annual bed.

And don't limit these beautiful flowers to one area of the garden! Cosmos is a fine choice for the vegetable patch; as a member of the Aster family, it does a good job of repelling "bad bugs" and attracting beneficial insects and wasps to help your veggies grow and bloom their best. Native to Mexico, it has a natural resistance to most pests and diseases, so Cupcakes Mix will grow readily with very little attention from you.

This mixture came about by accident, as so many wonderful things do. Gardener Diane Engdahl of Santa Rosa, California, discovered a Cosmos in her garden that set unique cup-shaped blooms. She carefully saved seeds and sent them off to a grower in England, who cultivated nad refined them for several years before introducing them to Europe. The reaction was nothing short of a sensation -- you simply couldn't find Cupcakes Mix seeds the first spring they were on the market! We are delighted to bring them back home and make them available to "native" gardens here!

Cupcakes Mix is every bit as simple to sow and grow as other Cosmos. Direct-sow the seed into the warm spring soil, or to get an even earlier start on those blooms, sow the seed indoors a few weeks before last frost using your Bio Dome or seed flats. If direct-sowing, thin the seedlings to about 18 inches apart. That's all there is to it!

The total time from direct-sowing outdoors to blooming is a little under 4 months. Resist the impulse to set seed out the minute you can in spring -- they really need heat and sunshine to sprout and grow their best. If your season is short, definitely start the seeds indoors in your Bio Dome and then transplant when the soil has warmed up and the nights are above 55°F.

Cosmos is the classic cottage garden plant, and Cupcakes Mix introduces a really exciting, beautiful new look. Make this annual a centerpiece in your garden and vase this season!



Superior Germination Through Superior Science

Park's Superior Seeds Park Seed's humidity- and temperature-controlled seed storage vault Park Seed offers some of the highest-quality vegetable and flower seeds available in the industry, and there are a number of reasons for this.

First of all, we have humidity- and temperature-controlled storage, and we never treat any of our seeds with chemicals or pesticides. Nor do we ever sell GMO's (genetically modified seeds), so you always know the products you're buying from us are natural as well as safe for you and the environment.

Superior Standards - University Inspected

Testing seeds against minimum germination standards To make sure we are providing the best seed product possible and that our customers will get the highest number of seedlings from every packet, we conduct our own germination testing and have quality-control measures in every stage of our seed-handling operation. We hold ourselves to standards that are at or above federal and state standards, including testing specific crops more frequently than recommended by federal guidelines. And in order to maintain our organic certification, we welcome Clemson University to inspect us annually to make sure our organic seeds, which are stored and processed separately, are being handled properly.

Hand Packed By Experienced Technicians

Park Seed has been handling and packing vegetable and flower seeds for 145 years, a history that has given us a great understanding of how each variety should be cared for and maintained throughout every step of theprocess, from collection to shipping.

When packing our seeds, the majority are actually done by hand (with extreme care!), and we often over-pack them, so you're receiving more than the stated quantity.

The Park Seed Gold Standard

Park Seed's exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil seed packets And many of our seeds are packed in our exclusive Fresh-Pak gold foil packets, which are lined to keep moisture out, so the seeds stay fresher for longer. We carefully pack very tiny or fragile seeds in crush-proof vials to ensure safe delivery to your home. Some of the small seeds are also offered as "pellets" (have a clay coating) to make sowing and growing easier.

When it comes to the kinds of seeds we offer, we are constantly seeking something new and provide many unique and hard-to-find varieties from all around the world. Our on-staff horticulturists are ready and available to share their expertise to help you with the success of these seeds, so you can grow a beautiful and productive garden!
