'Fizzy Rose Picotee' is a bushy, upright, half-hardy annual cosmos similar to ‘Purity’ but with semi-double, white flowers stained and edged a raspberry-red. Finely-divided foliage adds to the charm of this popular cut-flower that reliably blooms, with regular deadheading, from summer into autumn. They're very easy to grow and will make wonderful summer infill in borders or larger pots. They also last well when cut for the vase, so make valuable additions to the cutting garden.
Plant out once all risk of frost has passed and pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushier growth. Feed at regular intervals with a high-potash fertiliser throughout summer. Taller plants may need supporting with brushwood stems in exposed positions.
