Nice flower but doesn't last long as a cut flower - stalk collapses. I much prefer the standard cosmos mix.

Lovely plants, long, tall stems, gorgeous colour, so proliferous that it almost becomes a burden to cut them every day. Six plants was too much for me, but I will definitely sow them again.

These are very easy to grow and have produced the most beautiful blooms, some ruffled like tissue paper and other rolled into little tubes, and the deep raspberry colour is exactly as shown in the packet. Tall plants but brilliant for growing through other plants, highly recommended.

A beautiful surprise
