Black Magic Cosmos

(Cosmos atrosanguineus). Chocolate-scented cosmos, originally from the pine and oak woods in Mexico. Believed now to be extinct in their native range in the pine oak forests of the Trans Mexican Volcanic Belt. The intoxicating aroma of chocolate cosmos has made them a favorite of gardeners for centuries. Until recently, plants were wild and a bit scraggly and could only be propagated by cuttings. Renown flower breeder, Dr. Keith Hammett of New Zealand, has created the incredible new Black Magic cosmos. With larger blooms, a neater growing habit and viable seeds, this is an exciting new heirloom innovation! Plants average 2 feet tall with blooms almost 2 inches across and the rich, velvety blooms truly look and smell like chocolate.

What are the pros? Easy grow, scent

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've never had a problem with germination. Every time I get 3 out 4 seeds to germinate. I use regular moisture control potting soil. I cover with about 1/4" of the potting soil, water in with *gasp* Miracle Gro regular plant food (the blue stuff) at a ratio of 1 tbsp per gallon of water. 6 days later, up they come! They take a good bit to flower... I don't keep a log, but it's about 1 1/2 to 2 months. These are my all time favorite flower. Love, love, LOVE the chocolate scent!

Review:

Well as some have mentioned or experienced these seeds are hard to germinate. Only one of mine was successful. I started them indoors under grow lights in early February as soon as the seeds came in as I knew this was a perennial plant (which will need to be brought in over winter).. The growth was very slow and seemingly only had a few inches of growth the first 2 months and then here we are June 1st and its about 6-8" tall and with its first flower bud. The plant itself is very sturdy and have had no pests to contend with. I will update later in the season on the progress.
