Cosmos & Verbara


We have a pot of Cosmos and a pot of Verbara which we have outside and were wondering what we should do with them over the winter to keep them in good shape for next year?

    Seed raised annual cosmos or perennial chocolate cosmos?

    Verbara-not familiar with this- do you been verbena by any chance?

    If verbena -what type?

  • verbena are actually senetti !!! I think I actually made up the name of a new flower, Verbara!! Sorry!!

    They both will not over winter-unless it is the chocolate cosmos which needs bringing under cover-just enjoy till they go over

    Chocolate cosmos will overwinter in a pot in a cool grenhouse, but not in the ground or out of doors.  Mine is now 3 years old, and lives in the greenhouse all year - just because I get even stronger chocolate perfume from it in there!!
