Cosmos 'Gazebo red'

Plant details

Daisy-like cosmos flowers are easy-to-grow and versatile annuals. They can be used to plug gaps in borders, grown as a feature in their own right or in the cuttings patch. Cosmos can also be used in container displays. The flowers attract a variety of bees, butterflies and hover flies, and also make a good cut flower.

Cosmos 'Gazebo Red' is a medium-sized bushy, early flowering variety of cosmos, with large velvety red blooms. For best results grow in full sun in well-drained soil, and deadhead spent blooms regularly to prolong flowering.
