Plentiful, Strong Plants
Review by Kara
These are beautiful. I started them in jiffy pots in February and I’m getting about 5-10 stems a day in early June! At first they look like your typical cosmo, but after about a month of flowering, I’m getting the distinctive cupcake liners with a flower in the middle. So many beautiful colors - from white to a dark mauve. They last over a week in the vase too! The plants do get rather tall and bushy so make sure you have plenty of space for them.
