    Novel cosmos resemble fluted cupcake wrappers.

    Cupcakes Blush is as showy as Double Click with lighter-weight blooms held upright on stems. The light-colored, finely pleated blooms float above the foliage, reminding us of Degas' paintings of ballerinas. A small percentage of flowers have lovely, tufted centers. A fun addition to the cutting garden or flower border and one of the easiest and most productive cut flowers per square foot you can grow.

    Harvesting/Vase Life:
    Individual blooms don’t last long in the vase, about 4-6 days, but each stem is loaded with multiple blossoms that open over a period of a week. Harvest when buds are cracking, but haven’t fully opened in order to prevent insects from pollinating, which will help stretch the vase life by a few extra days. Flower preservative is recommended
