Chocolate Cosmos or Cosmos atrosanguineus origins are found in Mexico and have tubers similar to dahlias. Flowers smell like cocoa or chocolate and can be used as a garnish. Grows 24"-30". Dead head flowers for more blooms.
Considered an annual and a heat loving plant. Perennial in zones 9-11 and grow well in containers. In Ontario, we lift the tubers in fall, store over winter and replant the following spring. Starting from seeds may take several seasons to mature to blooming size.
