Ratings & Reviews

Cosmos- Rubenza

These germinated really easily and the flower colour is stunning. They don't grow too high, so I just popped them in wherever I had a spot in the garden and they grew well. They don't even seem too fussy about soil, growing well in dryer and damper places and in quite heavy clay.
