Ornamental cotton

Franklin, OH(Zone 6a)

I've grown ornamental cotton the last two years. I love it! Unfortunately, our cold wet spring and early summer didn't give my cotton enough time to open the bolls. Is there a way to force that to happen, or does anyone have extras I might buy from you?

I'm not sure if there is more than one kind of this cotton. My leaves were a beautiful dark red and the flowers were both cream and pink.

Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated!
