Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sonata White'

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 as part of a container display. The flowers attract a variety of bees, butterflies and hoverflies, and also make a good cut flower.

Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sonata White' is a compact cosmos, bearing masses of pure white, single, saucer-shaped flowers, in contrast with bright green, feathery foliage. It's perfect for growing in pots and both its flowers and foliage work well in cut flower arrangements. For best results grow Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sonata White' in moist but well-drained soil, in full sun. Deadhead spent flowers to encourage repeat-flowering.

I love cosmos. I only starting growing them last year and found them very easy to grow from seed,
There is something beautiful and wildflowerish about them. I think they are a glorious flower.



I was advised that these plant will still grow indoors during thee winter as a new b can anyone tell me more if this would be correct stunning plant,
