Cosmos 'Black Magic'
If you have grown Cosmos `Chocolate 'with its particularly amazing scent, you'll want to try this new selection from New Zealand. With larger flowers but that same terrific aroma, `Black Magic' has a neater form suited to gardens and pots. Some variation in flower colour occurs from black and brown to dark-red and burgundy. Great for cutting and perennial in frost-free environments.
Deadhead regularly and treat as an annual in cold or frost susceptible areas. Save the seed and sow again next spring.
