Cosmos bipinnatus ‘Snow Puff’ seeds

$4.10

A very pretty plant with large fully double frothy pure white flowers.

Description

This new beautiful cosmos has large fluffy double pure white flowers up to 7 cm across, on a tall plant which has abundant flowers. It flowers from summer through into autumn and makes a great cut flower. It makes a pretty statement in the garden, and will also make a good container subject.

It likes full sun in average medium moisture, well drained soils. Don’t put into rich fertile soils or fertilise, as it will put all its energy into growing taller and producing more leaves at the expense of flowers and will flop over. Pinch out tips for  a bushier plant
