Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
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").

Feed and water cosmos plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded cosmos flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced.
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.
