Malvaceae Gossypium

    A tropical, perennial plant, cotton is grown from seed in the U.S. as an annual crop. Cotton, also known as "White Gold", is very easy to grow from seed. Growing cotton from seeds is a great educational tool to show the kids where the fabric cotton actually comes from. Kids love to get involved in such seed growing projects!

     Beautiful white flowers grace the cotton plants in mid-summer. Dried cotton bolls can be used as filler in flower arrangements.
