Bright Lights is a spectacle for both garden enthusiasts and wildlife alike. Standing at 36" with vibrant 2 ½" flowers, these cosmos create a visually stunning display from midsummer to the first frost, attracting butterflies and hummingbirds with their nectar-rich blossoms. Thriving in wildflower and naturalized areas, they are low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and a vibrant addition to your landscape. Embrace neglect as their preferred care, and watch as they flourish with vibrant hues of orange and yellow.

Beyond aesthetics, these cosmos play a crucial role in supporting native bumble bees, long-horned bees, green metallic bees, and other specialist insects, contributing to the biodiversity of your garden. Great cut flower.
