Cosmos Sensation Series Overview

Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sensation Series' is more commonly known as just Cosmos 'Sensation Mix'. This half-hardy annual from the Asteraceae family produces large single flowers in all shades of red, pink and white. Flowers have yellow centres and are held on 90 cm tall stems with attractive feathery, medium green leaves providing a beautiful backdrop. A vigorous variety ideal for patio containers and/or planting schemes. This series is part of the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants which support pollinator populations by providing ample amounts of nectar and/ or pollen. A great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
