Description

A white-flowered cosmos with a deep carmine edge as if every petal has been dipped in ink. Grow as a splash of contrast through Cosmos 'Purity' – it goes brilliantly.

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.
