Tango cosmos flowers are a vivid shade of fiery orange and make an excellent natural dye for cotton and wool. They look beautiful dancing in the breeze on their almost invisible stems. Pollinators love the pollen and nectar. Keep picking the flowers or deadheading to keep the plant blooming all summer long.

Tango cosmos flowers and leaves are edible and medicinal. Studies show the plant has antioxidant, antimalarial, antibacterial, antiparasitic, and liver-protecting properties.

Growing Instructions

Start indoors and transplant after last frost. or direct sow after last frost.
