Cosmos atrosanguineus CHOCAMOCHA

Cosmos atrosanguineus CHOCAMOCHA


A tender Mexican perennial grown as much for its scent of vanilla and hot chocolate as for its dusky brownish-red late-summer blooms. It's perfect for growing in a hot sunny garden, and makes an exotic cut flower.

Chocamocha’ has even more of a chocolatey fragrance than the species, and is also more compact, so may not need staking.
