Cosmos ‘Chocolate’, 2 Litre Pot


An upright, tuberous perennial with a chocolate scent and maroon flowers in late summer.

Excellent in a bowl on its own, or with other tall flowering plants.

Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost.

Dies back over winter, buy may revive in spring if protected from frost.  Alternatively dig tubers before the first frosts and keep in a cool, frost free area.  Replant in a pot the following spring.

Tubers should be protected by a mulch, or brought inside over winter unless in a sheltered position.
