Common Name: Cosmos
In the summer of 2021, we planted Cosmos 'Dr. Bonnie Henry Pollinator Blend' along the front of the Sunflower Garden. It is a mix of C. bipinnatus and C. sulphureus in pastel colours favoured by Dr. Bonnie.
Chocolate cosmos (C. atrosanguineus) is often planted in the Fragrance Garden because of its 'Hershey Bar' fragrance. Its dark red-brown-blackish flowers attract pollinators.
