Cosmos. Cosmos bipinnatus.

A non-native to Ireland annual flower, this is great because it won’t cross breed with our native species. It is low maintenance and a great flower for beginners to grow! A real beauty in a cottage garden flower bed growing up to 180cms tall. Attractive to bees with it’s open flower and beautiful dark pink to white coloured petals. It has fine foliage which adds delicate texture and soft scent to the flower bed. Works really well as a cut flower for posies or flower arrangements. Flowers from July to October giving out large seeds in upright pods at the end of the season that are easy to collect and clean for next year.
