Description

The chocolate plant!

Native to Mexico, the chocolate cosmos, or Cosmos atrosanguineus, is a delicate perennial prized for its dusky brownish-red blossoms and a delightful fragrance reminiscent of vanilla and hot chocolate, blooming in late summer. Ideal for hot, sun-soaked gardens, it's a superb addition to a summer sanctuary and an exotic touch in floral arrangements as a cut flower.

This plant is renowned for attracting a diverse range of creatures like bees, beneficial insects, birds, butterflies, moths, and other pollinators, thanks to its abundant nectar and pollen. The seeds of Cosmos also serve as a food source for birds, amplifying its appeal to our feathered friends.
