Description

The newest (and to me the loveliest) of the new breedings of cosmos trialled in the garden here – soft, ethereal and quiet. I love this as a cut flower and it’s compact enough to be perfect in containers too, dreamy mixed with Phlox 'Crème Brûlée'.

Care Tips

Pinch out tips at 15-20cm to encourage bushier plants. Stake and tie if necessary during the growing season, water regularly and dead-head to prolong the flowering season.
