First time I have planted this variety of Cosmos. Plants were excellent but didn't meet my expectations with regards form and structure.

Very disappointed. Flowers were smaller than expected and went over within a day or so. Deadheading all the time. Won’t purchase again

I'm delighted with these lovely flowers, grown from seed. They have grown into vigorous plants covered in flowers which are great for cutting - they look particularly good in a vase with Cosmos Click Cranberry.
