Xanthos means "Yellow" in Greek and is a unique colour for cosmos. The 3" soft yellow flowers have a hint of white and cover like a blanket on this dwarf, uniform plant. The plants are well branched, grow well in pots and will continue to thrive all season long. One of the easiest and most popular direct seed annuals. Simply sprinkle the seed where you would like them to grow and magically they appear! Great fun for kids and the daintiest of cut flowers.
