Cosmos are stunning summer flowers perfect for borders, beds, and pots. Plant in fertile moist, but well-drained soil in full sun.
Cosmos ‘Astrosanguineus’ is a decadent treat for your garden, with the delicious rich fragrance of dark chocolate laced with vanilla. Sumptuous, velvety maroon blooms dance on long, wiry stems for an airy, elegant addition to pots and borders. The intoxicating, cocoa scent is equally adored by pollinators, and the open-faced blooms welcome bees and butterflies to indulge in the sweet nectar. Be sure to position some containers next to doors and walkways to fully appreciate the mesmerising perfume as you brush past. These tender perennials originate from Mexico: lift and store indoors over winter to protect them from the cold and wet.
Cosmos ‘Flamingo’ is a guilt-free sweet indulgence to enjoy all summer long, with bubble-gum pink petals and the irresistible scent of milk chocolate. Much like the charming annual cosmos, but with the advantage of delightful fragrance and a perennial habit, this variety will bring pleasure for many months, year after year. Pretty, saucer-shaped blooms wave on long, slender stems above finely divided, feathery foliage. The delicious vanilla scent acts as a magnet to local bees and butterflies, who will flit lightly between the flowers, relishing the sweet nectar. Lift and store these tender perennials under cover over winter.
