description for "Cosmos: Cosmos bipinnatus 'Double Click'"

Bred in France as a cut flower, the seed collection ‘Double Click’ offers lovely semi-double and fully double large frilly blossoms in rosy-red, pink, blush and white, all with sunny gold centers. The satin, 2 to 3 inch blossoms grow on long stems and flower nonstop from early summer on. Cut armfuls of bouquets – the more flowers you pick, the more the plants will produce. Butterflies seek out these extra-fancy cosmos as they sway above ferny foliage. The free-flowering, long blooming summer flowers of ‘Double Click’ produce reliably in all soil types to fill the garden with abundant blossoms. Sow several times through June for a succession of fresh flowers. Cutting generous bouquets actually prolongs the blooming season. ‘Double Click’ pairs beautifully with cleome, asters and zinnias. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
