Description
A 'must have' plant for gardening chocoholics! You'll be amazed by the luxurious, velvety blooms in rich cocoa shades that even smell of chocolate. Cosmos atrosanguineus 'Chocamocha' is particularly compact and much shorter than other cultivars, so the red-brown stems won't require staking. Chocolate Plants make as fabulous container plant and associate beautifully with fiery shades in hot coloured perennial borders. Although often grown as an annual, this lovely Cosmos can easily be over-wintered as a perennial when grown in containers and kept in frost free conditions. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

How to Grow
Pot up cosmos plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise cosmos plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out in beds, borders and containers. Choose a position in full sun on any moist, well drained soil.
More Info
Feed and water cosmos plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded cosmos flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
