Double click Rose bonbon seeds

beverlysc(8a SC)August 11, 2010

I'm having a problem getting seeds from my cosmos. I don't know if it's our hot weather or what the problem is. I just can not find the seeds.I know they produce seeds...I planted these from seeds.It's beautiful..but seedless right now. Has anybody else had this problem or is it just in my yard? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Bev

Bev, you are probably right, mine have not made any seeds, double white either...other cosmos made a few seeds at first, think in May, so we can blame it on the heat and humidity.
" Bright Lights" Cosmos is having plenty of seeds though!

I think that different varieties of cosmos produce different quantities of seeds, and like graanieb said, Bright Lights is a good producer of seeds.

I suggest just keeping a good eye on any cosmos and get what you can from them as they dry, before something else gets them, or they fall.

I have the white Double Click Cosmos and they not only produce fewer seeds, they are relatively small. I almost threw seeds out with chaff.
