CosmosCommon name

From New Zealand comes the first ever Black Cosmos to be grown from seed and for good measure the flowers have a dark chocolate fragrance. With dark leaves and irresistible velvet burgundy to almost black petals this is a breeders dream come true as you will judge by the price! Very choice and if mulched heavily has every chance of surviving a frost. 2’. HHP.

How to Grow Cosmos atrosanguineum from Seed

Sow indoors in March-April in moist well drained compost just covering with a sprinkling of fine compost. Germination normally takes 7-14 days at a temperature of 70F. Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into individual 3" pots and grow on under glass. Once any danger of frost has passed plant out into their final position. Remember to deadhead to prolong flowering and give a good mulch during the Autumn. In colder areas it may be wiser to lift the tubers before the first frost and keep frost free during the winter.
