Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
The sumptuous, velvety maroon-brown blooms of the Chocolate Cosmos make a fabulous feature in late summer borders. With their richly coloured petals and delicious cocoa fragrance this is definitely one for chocoholics. The nectar rich blooms are irresistible to pollinating insects too! Bred in the UK, Cosmos atrosanguineus 'Chocamocha' has a compact, bushy habit that is ideal for patio containers or the front of sunny borders. Although often grown as an annual, this lovely Cosmos can easily be over-wintered as a perennial when grown in containers and kept in frost free conditions. Supplied as plug plants. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. Deadhead faded Cosmos flowers frequently throughout summer to encourage more blooms to be produced.
Pot up Cosmos plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise Cosmos plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting outdoors on well drained soil in a sunny position.
