Description

This new variety of Cosmos sulphureus is rare to find and invaluable for being a single colour, just the brilliant tangerine on its own without the yellow. We love growing it with crimsons such as Antirrhinum ‘Liberty Crimson’ and Hibiscus ‘Mahogany’.

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.
