A lovely new variety of Cosmos with large pink ruffled semi-double flowers from June to October.  Cosmos ‘Fizzy Pink’ flowers sit on tall 1m stems surrounded by attractive feathery leaves.  Flowering continues to the first frosts with deadheading.  These make good cut flowers and attract pollinators into the garden.


Cosmos ‘Fizzy Pink’ grows best in full sun and moist well drained soil.
