10+ Cotton (Gossypium herbaceum) Seeds. Great for kids, schools, scouts or just your own kids in the back yard, growing cotton not only provides a beautiful plant with lovely flowers throughout the summer, but also is a great learning experience for the kids to see where the basic material for their favorite jeans comes from! You can even save the cotton that you get in the fall and put it out in the spring for your neighborhood birds to use as nesting material or use it in your Holiday decorations as your own home-grown snow! Great for lots of crafting projects.
Did you know that COTTON is in the same family as Hibiscus? That explains the lovely yellow flowers it gets, which change to a dusty rose color throughout the day. You'll be walking in HIGH COTTON with these plants, some of these bushes reach 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide (some stay shorter), this will be one of the really fun things for you to grow this year.
Cotton is most happy growing in full sun but can tolerate part shade, needs well draining, sandy soil. Although cotton can be grown as a perennial in some warm zones, it is most often grown as an annual. I grow my cotton 100% naturally - there are no chemicals, herbicides or insecticides used on it like are used in cotton produced on a mass scale (like you would get from a large cotton field).
