Cosmos Fizzy Rose Picotee Seedlings
Cosmos Fizzy Rose Picotee
Cosmos bipinnatus Fizzy Rose Picotee has won the hearts (and minds) of almost everyone at Ashridge so we just had to include it in our range of ready to plant cosmos seedlings.
Cosmos Fizzy Rose is quite hard to describe and do it full justice. The flowers are variable in two respects. Some are single while others are semi-double and we have even caught it producing fully double blooms. The second is that the colouring is somewhat variable. Some flowers are definitely white with dark lilac-pink edged petals, which others are almost completely lilac pink with a little bit of white.
But "Fizzy" is fun in a border or cutting garden and looks good in a container too. It is a big Cosmos - reaching 100 cms quite easily and produces so many flowers that it needs to be "harvested" weekly. As long as it does not run to seed, a single plant can produce well over 100 flowers in a summer. Which is great as like all cosmos it is a superb cut flower and almost trouble free. And it makes me smile every time I see it.
