A sensational, upright, half-hardy annual cosmos with double white flowers, some of which may have a pink blush. 'Double Click Snow Puff' is a sought after summer infill with finely-divided foliage producing the succession of pom-pom-like blooms borne on sturdy, branching stems from summer until the first autumn frosts. Deadhead regularly to prolong the flowering season.
- Growing instructions: In early spring, sow shallowly in seed trays and keep under glass, transplanting them into individual pots when large enough to handle. Harden off before planting outside after the frosts. Alternatively, sow in-situ in mid- to late spring in a well-prepared bed and thin the seedlings out as they grow to allow approximately 30cm between each. As the seedlings grow, pinch out the tips to encourage bushier plants. Taller plants may need supporting with brushwood stems in exposed positions.
- Sow: March to May
- Flowering: June to October
