A very long-flowering calm and pretty duo of white and primrose-yellow cosmos, both suitable sizes for growing in containers, and rather than deadheading, live-head for long-lasting vases inside too.This collection includes a seed packet each of the following:
- Cosmos bipinnatus 'Dwarf Sensation White'
- Cosmos bipinnatus 'Xanthos'
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.
