next crop ready mid -late May. What could be more delightful… a chocolate colored cosmos that also smells like chocolate? This compact form (18″-24″) of a Mexican wildflower is a strong flower producer, as long as you remove spent blossoms regularly. It takes off once the weather warms, and can continue up to frost. We love using it in containers to add a dash of darkness to planting schemes. Dig up the roots and store like Dahlias to overwinter.
Hardiness zones: 7-10
