Plant details

These are plants for the border or cottage garden where they can be arranged in groups for height and colour among other tall plants. They are also ideal for cutting, lasting well in water and appreciated for their long stems, as well as the range of colours of their single dahlia-like blooms, 8cm (3in) or more across. They are undemanding plants, flourishing in any warm sunny spot and poor soils. 'Cosmic Orange' is an award-winning strain, producing bushy plants with large bright orange flowers, available as a mixture or in single colours.
