  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: half hardy annual

    This popular, pure white annual cosmos makes a great filler plant for a sunny, moist but well-drained border. As long as it's dead-headed regularly it will produce a succession of graceful, pure white, saucer-shaped flowers up to 10cm (4in) in diameter from June to October and masses of feathery, mid-green leaves.

    Grown in individual plug cells, each plant measures about 5-7cm cm tall (from the base of the root to the top of the plant). They can be grown on or planted straight out into the garden after all risk of frost has passed.

    Please note that as we grow these for especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you. See above for despatch dates for this particular plant. To ensure that your plants arrive in the best possible condition each pack will be despatched individually.

        The plug plants were very healthy; I put quite a few straight into the ground and they still did well.
        This subject is extremely useful for combining with roses or herbaceous plants and if dead-headed lasts all season.

          So easy to grow and lasted well into autumn. Very pretty, and for me the white is so much more attractive than other cosmos. Also cut well for informal arrangements.

            I bought a large collection of Cosmos and spread them throughput my garden. They are tall and looked like stars floating in the borders. I bought them early and kept them in the greenhouse until the weather was good. They were in excellent condition when they arrived and all survived and grew really well.

                  Hello,

                  Yes, these may need supporting with brushwood stems - particularly if grown in exposed positions.

              After the last frost date, plant up containers with tender flowering bedding and reliable foliage plants. Line terracotta pots with polythene, taking care not to cover the planting holes, to reduce water loss through the porous sides of the pot.
