Description

The chocolate plant!

The chocolate cosmos, scientifically known as Cosmos atrosanguineus 'Chocamocha' syn. 'Thomocha', is a delicate perennial native to Mexico. It is cherished not only for its dusky brownish-red blossoms that emerge in late summer but also for its delightful fragrance reminiscent of vanilla and hot chocolate. This plant thrives in hot, sun-drenched gardens, making it a perfect addition to your summer oasis.  Additionally, it serves as an exquisite choice for floral arrangements, lending an exotic touch as a cut flower.

Cosmos possesses a reputation for its ability to entice an array of fascinating creatures, including bees, beneficial insects, birds, butterflies, moths, and various pollinators. The flowers of this plant are abundant in nectar and pollen, making them a valuable resource for these creatures. Cosmos also produces seeds that serve as a food source for birds, further enhancing its appeal to avian visitors.

Our fresh-from-the-ground Chocolate Cosmos roots are carefully shipped, and always at least one year old, providing a boost to their strength and accelerating growth. With bare-root stock, plants adapt effortlessly to their new environment, ensuring a smooth transition and thriving growth.
