Cosmos is a member of the Compositae or Asteraceae family, just like their ‘cousins’: sunflowers, marigolds, yarrow, daisies, zinnias, lettuce and dandelions. Not surprisingly, the name Cosmos comes from the Greek word ‘kosmos’ which means ‘beautiful’. The edible flowers come in many colours and grow tall with attractive feathery leaves that attract bees and butterflies. Flowers can be used in cooking to brighten up salads or decorate cakes!
Easy care flowers love a full sun position in your garden or a pot, growing through spring to autumn. Cosmos plants grow well even in tough, hot or dry conditions with little water. They flower best in poor soils with less organic matter which encourages lots of leaves at the expense of blooms.
Pot Size 50mm
