This beautiful variety is 45cm shorter than the 'Sensation' type of Cosmos, making it much more manageable for garden use. The strong stemmed 8cm blooms are excellent for cutting and the reduced height makes them excellent for beds and borders. They are lovely in containers, showing off some of the finest lacy foliage of any annual. It is a complete mixture of popular colours which includes the 91 Fleuroselect award winning white. It flowers summer to autumn. Height: 60cm.
Sow 3mm deep in spring at 21-24C in a good seed compost. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a polythene bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 5-10 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 6cm apart. Plant in a sunny spot on light well drained soil. For pot plants, transplant the seedlings into 7.5cm pots, grow cool, well ventilated and give plenty of light, but shade from direct sun.
