Cosmos bippinatus

Casanova is a very easy to grow, genetically or naturally dwarf and therefore doesn’t need growth regulators (PGRs) to stay compact. It’s early to flower and is suited for growing in the pack, pots and flower borders and exhibits a well branched plant habit. Plants reach a height of 35-40 cm/14-16 in., which make it the most compact Cosmos on the market. Recommended for growing in 10 cm/4 in. pots to gallon containers, and it also can be utilized as a lovely component in mixed containers. Best in full sun and daylength neutral. Casanova will flower under long- and short day conditions. Casanova is available in red, pink, violet, white and a full mixture.

Breeder Floragran has appointed Hem Genetics as wholesale distributor for the series.

  • Genetically compact, usually requires no PGRs
