(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.
