Cosmos Collection


We all love cosmos, especially the bees and butterflies.
Incredibly elegant open flowers with golden-yellow, cheeky button centres. The delicate, ferny foliage is a sight to behold as it proudly waves gently in the breeze to greet you. All the varieties within your collection have been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit, meaning they offer great garden performance and reliability. You’ll enjoy cutting the blooms for your home – if collected in the morning just before the blooms open, they’ll last for between seven and ten days. The more you deadhead the plant, the more the blooms magically appear. Half hardy annual. Spread 30cm (12"). Supplied as young plants.

sulphureus Rubenza: Height 75cm (30").

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
