Cosmos atrosanguineus 'Chocamocha'

Chocolate Cosmos
Some of us love chocolate. Some of us love dark colored mysterious flowers. When presented with a flower the color of rich cocoa plus a scent to match, how can we resist? This Chocolate Cosmos will grant you an abundance of flowers over the summer season, especially if deadheaded regularly. Grows 15-18" tall. Roots can be dug and stored like Dahlias if you live in colder climates.
