Plant details

Cosmos always look delightful in a flower border. 'Gazebo Mixed' features large blooms in velvet red, rose-pink and pure white. The well-branched plants are medium height and come into flower earlier than most other varieties. The fern-like foliage is also attractive. It is useful as a border filler. Sow seed in situ in May.
