Description
Cosmos ‘Sensation Picotee” is a superb easy to grow annual and one of the earliest blooming cosmos mixtures. The tall, graceful plants have delicate ferny foliage and throw up blooms from spring through summer and right through to the end of autumn. The large, single flowers ranging from white to carmine red all with picotee edged flowers in the mixture, each with a yellow centre, they make fabulous cut flowers, and are perfect for bouquets.
Disease free and its tolerance of poor soil, heat and humidity, make it an excellent choice if you are looking for an easy to grow “no fuss” annual that will thrive on minimal care. Deserving a sunny site in any garden, these adaptable plants are absolutely great for cutting, pots and borders. Water, sun and soil are all that is needed.

Cosmos is one of the best nectar plants for attracting butterflies to the garden, the seed heads attract birds and the flowers are perfect for pressing. Very easy to grow, making it a perfect choice for children or the less experienced gardener. Excellent in beds and borders as well as the cutting garden. They are also perfect for container plantings where their toughness and showiness can keep the flower show going all through the long growing season.

The large plants make a bold, beautiful statement in any flower garden!
At the season’s end, don’t be too quick to pull up withering cosmos plants. Birds (particularly gold finches) love to snack on their seed heads in autumn, and the seeds that they miss may drop to the ground and reward you the next year by sprouting into a whole new crop.

Cut Flowers: Cosmos is a cut-and-come-again bloomer, meaning that the sooner you cut the blooms, the quicker new buds will pop up to replace them. The blooms appear so profusely that you’ll still have plenty of colour in the garden after you’ve picked your flowers. If you sear the stem end in boiling water for twenty seconds they will last a week in water.
