Black Magic Chocolate Cosmos

80% of 100

These deliciously chocolate-scented cosmos originated in the pine and oak forests of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, though they are now believed to be extinct there. Their intoxicating aroma has made them a favorite of gardeners for centuries. Until recently, plants were wild, a bit scraggly, and could only be propagated by cuttings. Renowned flower breeder, Dr. Keith Hammett of New Zealand created the incredible new Black Magic cosmos we now enjoy. With larger blooms, a neater growing habit, and a few viable seeds, this is an exciting new heirloom innovation! Plants average 2' tall with blooms reaching nearly 2" across. Rich, velvety blooms truly look and smell like chocolate!
