Red Foliated Cotton

160 days--Gorgeous red leaves and stems are the color of Thanksgiving cranberry sauce! The hibiscus-like flowers are a cherry-red to cerise pink, and eventually yield snowy white bolls. 3-4 foot, bushy plants.

What are the pros? Gorgeous, Heat Tolerant

What are the cons? Awkward Plant Growth

Review:

I grew this along with the Arkansas Green cotton. Although the Arkansas Green produced more (not that it mattered...cant eat it!), this cotton was gorgeous. The foliage is very pretty and unique. The flowers are a beautiful hot pink. Plus, when the bolls form and pop open, it's quite striking seeing snow-white cotton against the red foliage and pink flowers. Plus, it loves the heat and isn't very demanding. However, be sure to keep cotton sprayed, and you'll need to stake them once the bolls form as they're very heavy..

What are the pros? Foliage deep burgundy

What are the cons? Long growing season

Review:

I have had so much fun growing this cotton! I started the seeds April 1, did not get the greatest germination rate, maybe 30% but all I really wanted was three or four plants anyway. In May I repotted them into five gallon buckets and put them in the sun on my deck. Over the summer the plants grew about 3.5 feet tall and had many gorgeous ivory and pink flowers. One of the bolls is splitting now in mid Sept. I'm zone 5 and the plants seem to be dying back now but I want to grow this every year, it is worth the effort!

Review:

At my friend's farm we are trying to grow plants that need little care in the area that is most difficult for us to get to water to (at the moment). There is a good reason cotton to plant cotton in NC, because it worked easily in the past. It thrives in this ecosystem with virtually no fertilizer, and rarely needs water. So if you live in this zone and have parts of land that are mostly clay... this plant will succeed here.

Review:

I have been looking for cotton seeds for a long time and found this website and ordered right away. I planted two seeds and only one came up. The one that came up is doing very well. I got my first flower, it was a creamy white with pink tips and as it got older it turned to a cranberry color before falling off the stem. They are beautiful flowers and look like hibiscus flowers. They aren't very fragrant but still nice to look at. The first flower that bloomed has a huge boll can't wait for it to open and see the cotton inside. I would highly recommend this plant to anyone who is interested in cotton.

Review:

The germination rate was 100% on this, and honestly I can't believe I am growing cotton in New England. It's still early days but I literally have dozens of bolls forming on my 6 cotton plants. I've read it can be kept as a perennial, so at the end of the season, I'm digging up the best plant and bringing it in to see what happens.
