At between 40-60 cms tall Cosmos Sonata White is much smaller and tidier than your average Cosmos bipinnatus, which can often reach 100 cms. This plant is the classic white of the Sonata range which is made up of dwarf Cosmos that were developed for smaller gardens, window boxes and container gardening in general. It is certainly the "go to" white Cosmos if you have a patio, terrace, balcony or roof-garden and it is because of this as well as its incessant production of pure white flowers that Cosmos Sonata White is one of our ready to plant cosmos seedlings. If you have pots, buy some!
Planted in a drift, by itself or mixed with other colours in the range, Cosmos Sonata White can put on a breath-taking display. Annual Cosmos produce staggering quantities of very "cuttable" flowers In a seemingly endless stream (flood more like) from May until November. Because it is a smaller plant than Cosmos such as the Double Clicks, the stems will be somewhat shorter than those of its taller cousins but, although we have not counted, it seems to produce about as many flowers.
