Cosmos Cosimo Red-White
Cosimo Red-White is possibly the earliest flowering Cosmos available. This variety is ideal for adding an early splash of colour in the border, continuing through the summer. Their bushy, dwarf plants produce masses of attractive red and white bi-coloured blooms which are ideal for attracting pollionators such as bees into the garden and can reach an approximate height of 50-60cm (20-24").
