The fragrance is much stronger on hot sunny days. This is a perennial plant is from Mexico and thrives in a warm climate. The plant grows to 60cm and prefers a sunny position with good drainage. Chocolate cosmos is frost sensitive. If growing in a frosty or wet winter areas, either grow in a pot and protect or tuber can be lifted and stored.
