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

The Sonata Series cosmos’ compact feathery 2-foot plants are soon covered with sprays of buds that open and bloom non-stop all summer long. The blossoms’ 2-inch satiny petals in shade of magenta, clear white, soft pastel pink and pure rose surround cheerful yellow centers. Reliable and long lasting with stems long enough for cutting lots of bouquets, free-blooming ‘Sonata’ cosmos are perfect for containers, beds or borders and fill the garden with dainty gaiety all summer. ‘Sonata’ cosmos are among the easiest and most reliable of all summer flowers. Plant well-bred knee-high ‘Sonata’ for quick bloom and manageable size. The bright silky flowers and ferny foliage combine beautifully with blue salvia, dwarf sunflowers and zinnias. Cutting ‘Sonata’s’ vibrant flowers for bouquets actually prolongs the blooming season (called “deadheading”). – edited by dtd pbcouchman
