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!

Melody wrote an article about cotton last month and Sally wrote one in 2011. Have a look!

Thank you so much.

I read them both. Seems like next year I should put a couple of seeds in pots. We never know what our summers will be like.

Guess I'll go looking for venders!!

I love it when people read articles based on my recommendation!

I ordered some seed from eBay, they should be here shortly!
