Description

Large, open buttercup-like flowers of carmine pink with delicate, feathery foliage. Beautiful, tall and airy.

Cosmos last 10 days in the vase, produce at least two buckets of cut flowers a week from a 1 x 1m patch, and do so from late June until November. So that's nearly 50 buckets of flowers in one season from a small patch. They are impossible to beat.

Care Tips

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