Every garden deserves ‘Rubenza’ Cosmos. ‘Rubenza’ Cosmos is just so pretty, so eye-catching, so doggone easy to grow.

The single blooms are neon-bright above fresh green foliage. They open a deep, satisfying shade of ruby red, then mature to fire-engine bright. You’ll spot them from way down the street, and even a small planting will make a big impact. What is it about a bright red flower that is so satisfying? ‘Rubenza’ Cosmos is one you won’t want to miss.
‘Rubenza’ Cosmos reaches 24 to 36 inches high and about 12 to 18 inches wide. ‘Rubenza’ Cosmos germinates super-quick, indoors or out, and grows quickly.
