Colour changing flowers
A brand new cosmos! Cosmos 'Xsenia' has one-of-a-kind terracotta orange petals edged with rose pink. In full sun, the petals appear bright pink and as the light fades in the evening (or on cloudy days) the orange tones seem to intensify like the setting sun. Flowers June-September. Height 50-60cm (20-24"); spread 50-60cm (20-24").
- Orange petals edged in rose pink
- The petals appear to change colour with the light
- The new, metallic-looking cosmos
With metallic-looking petals, our new cosmos makes a real showstopper, and we love the way that the petals appear to burn more vibrantly as the light fades.
