description for "Cosmos: Cosmos bipinnatus 'Snow Sonata'"

Award-winning ‘Snow Sonata’ grows just under 2 feet tall with branching, many budded stems above a cloud of feathery, fine-cut foliage. Their satiny textured, 2 to 3 inch, daisy-shaped blossoms have perfect snow white petals and sunny gold centers. The fast growing, joyous flowers of ‘Snow Sonata’ bloom non-stop, providing graceful sprays of silky white flowers for country-style bouquets. The dancing blossoms fill garden beds and patio pots to beckon butterflies all summer long. Cosmos’ free flowering blooms produce reliably in all soil types and can be sown several times through early July for succession of flowers. Cutting generous bouquets actually prolongs the blooming season. Replant a spent spring flower bed with satiny ‘Snow Sonata,’ deep indigo ‘Royal Ensign’ bush morning glories, and sparkling signet marigolds for a summer showing to shine until frost. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
