Mr. Fothergill's Cosmos 'Sensation Mixed'


Botanical Name: Cosmos bipinnatus

These sensational single flower heads grow up to 3.5 in across in a range of reds, pinks and whites. The finely feathered foliage provides an attractive backdrop to lower growing plants. A half hardy annual which prefers a sunny position and relatively poor soil.

Plant Height: 90-120cm

How To Grow

Sow in flowering position. Thin as necessary. Deadhead to prolong flowering season. For even results in cooler conditions, sow 0.25in (0.5cm) deep in pots or trays of seed compost. Maintain gentle warmth - 16C (61F) and keep moist. Thin (prick out) to other trays when seedlings are large enough to handle. Harden off before planting out in late spring spacing 18in (45cm) apart.
