NEW VARIETY! This is the first fertile Chocolate Cosmos ever in cultivation. It will set seed unlike all other Cosmos atrosanguineus. Chocolate Flower Farm is the first to offer tubers of this new fertile Cosmos.
Bare root tubers that will ship in March.
Smells like chocolate and blooms from June til frost. This must have perennial is not only beautiful, smells awesome but is also deer resistant and makes a fabulous cut flower. Sun lover. Hardy to 10 degrees. Needs a site with good drainage to ensure tubers don't rot in wet winter conditions.
Flower forms vary from this seed raised plant. Some plants will have round petals similar to the sterile Cosmos that has been in cultivation, some will have serations, some will look like pinwheels some will have narrower petals. All will set seed and we have experienced approx 12 seeds per flower on mature plants.
Exclusive to Chocolate Flower Farm
**Apologies to our international customers but we are unable to ship live plants (tubers) outside the United States**
