Cosmos Bipinnatus 'Cupcake'

 

Cosmea 'Cupcake'

Cosmos are half-hardy annuals which flower in summer to early autumn until the first frosts. Brightly coloured, saucer shaped flowers are numerous and daisy-like and sit above deeply cut, fern-like foliage. 'Cupcake' has unusual petals that form a goblet shape. The white colour turns pink as the flower ages. It is not as tall as many varieties.
