Cosmos Daydream

Cosmos bipinnatus Daydream is well named. The rose pink of the petals at the centre of the flower fade into the palest, dreamiest pink. It really is a very pretty flower which is why it has found its way into the select company of our range of ready to plant cosmos seedlings.

We love Cosmos as a plant. Given sun and water, they flower all summer long; you can grow them as a feature or just as a quick infill for a gap in the border that somehow got overlooked. The leaves are fun in May and then Cosmos Daydream begins to produce an almost endless stream of its lovely blooms in shades of pink. We think it looks best planted en masse in a border, but our next door neighbour at home uses it in containers following on behind tulips and alliums with a bid of silver variegated ivy. The effect is smashing.

Providing Cosmos Daydream is cut to be used indoors or deadheaded as the flowers fade, it will carry on delighting the eye all summer. There is probably not another plant family that flowers as hard for as long. Cutting helps that process and as cosmos is a very good cut flower - lasting 7-10 days in water we reckon that planting a patch somewhere is simply essential.
