Common Cosmos (Cosmos bipinnatus 'Sonata Carmine')
The species name has to be taken out as it is a hybrid of Cosmos bipinnatus and Cosmos atrosanguineus.

Every reputable source that I've found says that the Sonata series is just Cosmos bipinnatus that has been bred for a more compact habit. I've never seen it listed as a hybrid with C. atrosanguineus anywhere. I see nothing in its morphology that would suggest that it was a hybrid.

I am confused Danita, I found the info of it being a hybrid on this webpage where under the left down corner image it says "hybrid with Cosmos atrosanguineus" but now I see it contradicts the info in the box.. Confused
I am sorry for the confusion, I shouldn't have jumped so fast to conclusion!

The RHS also says Cosmos bipinnatus Sonata Series

Sorry Zuzu for the mistake!
