Zummerzet, United Kingdom Gb

Cosmos 'Sensation Mix'
i grew them from seed
and rewarded with fab disaply of tall flowering cosmos .
This week i notice something new !
a bi-colour cosmos ...
still searching google to see anyone come across this....

On plant Cosmos bipinnatus




I love Cosmos Zz....such a great return they give.....and yes I've seen this bi-colour one a gardening mag probably, a couple of the seeds could have got in with yours when packing? It looks similar to Dream Picotee, there are pics of this one on Ebay...........

I would keep the seed to yourself They could pass it off as their own breed.. Or it may just be a natural cross from another plants that has happened where the plants are grown for seed harvesting.
