Cosmos x dahlia 'Mexican Black' (syn. 'Mexican Star')

An interesting hybrid, supposedly between chocolate cosmos and dahlia, this variety makes a bushy and elegant plant sporting chocolate scented (and coloured!) single flowers. Always in short supply.

Height 30 " (75 cm)
Pack of 3 tubers for £7.50
Note that the registered name of this variety is now 'Mexican Star'. Apparently, the colour of the flowers was not deemed black enough to warrant the former name! Our stock has always produced plants with flowers the colour of dark chocolate but we understand that in poor soil conditions, the flowers may lose this intensity of colour.
