Create a dreamy summer display with this pastel masterpiece, Cosmos bipinnatus 'Daydream’. Tall upright stems with soft ferny foliage create an airy effect which provides gentle movement to a planting scheme, each plant topped with a profusion of large daisy-like flowers. Blooming continuously throughout the summer months, you can be sure that this laid-back character will put on a good show for the entire season. Noteworthy about this variety in particular is its unusual bicolour flowers which are centred with a bright pink ring, fading to white towards the edges. Loved by bees and other pollinators, this is a great choice for wildlife gardens and relaxed cottage schemes. Height: 90cm (36”). Spread: 40cm (16”).
1 packet (100 seeds) (26083)
Sow Cosmos seed from March to May at a depth of 3mm (⅛") in a good quality seed compost, and cover the seeds with a very fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 7-15 days.
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7cm (3") potsand grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Cosmos plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun in any moist, well drained soil at a distance of 45cm (18") apart. Pinch out the growing tip of each stem when transplanting to encourage stems to branch and produce more Cosmos flowers.
