Cosmos 'Double Click Cranberries'
Sold out for now
Type/Hardiness Annual, Half Hardy
Flowering period June-October
Height 24-36in/60-90cm
Light preference Full sun/part shade
Soil preference Any, but moist and free-draining
Sowing time/depth Spring, Barely cover
A wonderful addition to the cosmos family, this variety has deep-red, fully double flowers. For best effect plants should be as close to each other as 9 inches or so and planted en masse. Soil should be reasonably fertile, but if it is too rich, tall, lanky plants may result. As with most cosmos varieties, a good cut flower. (Externally sourced seeds.)
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Can be sown direct, lightly raked into the soil, thinning to approx. 18in apart. Alternatively, sow under cover in spring in modules or seed trays, at 68-77F/20-25C. Do not exclude light, which aids germination. Move into individual pots as the plants develop. Wait until frost no longer poses a threat before planting into open ground. Pinch out growing tips once the plants are about 9-12in tall, to encourage branching. Prefers a fertile, moist soil in full sun.
