Description

A white-mauve cosmos whose petal edges look as though they have been painted in a deep purple-carmine. My new-found favourite cosmos for scattering through white Cosmos 'Purity' or Malope trifida 'Alba' for a splash of contrast.

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.
