Official Name: Cosmos bipinnatus

General description: 

Cosmos are freely flowering annual plants that are ridiculously easy to grow. If you're looking for a flower that will stay in bloom for months and can be grown by simply scattering seeds, cosmos are a great choice. The flowers sit atop long slender stems and form a cloud of color that not only looks attractive throughout the summer but also attract beesbutterflies, and birds to your garden.Cosmos grow as easily in beds, and they make great cut flowers. The plants can handle drought, poor soil conditions, and general neglect. They even self-sow, but not to the point of becoming a nuisance. This is a truly low maintenance plant.Cosmos are quintessential cottage garden flowers and mix well with just about everything. The taller varieties look good in the middle or rear of the border, with spiky flowers such as agastache and goat's beard, and with rough-textured flowers such as coneflowers and black-eyed Susans. Shorter varieties make very colorful, airy edging plants.Cosmos flowers are daisy-like, with ray florets surrounding the center disc of florets in a shallow cup. There is a broad range of color and more every year. The leaves grow opposite and are either deeply lobed, pinnate, or bipinnate and feathery, depending on the variety. Since few pests bother cosmos, the plants look good all season.

How to grow: 

Although nursery seedlings are available, cosmos are so easy to grow from seeds that it makes little sense no overspend by buying nursery plants. You can start seeds indoors, four to six weeks before the last frost, but cosmos sown outdoors directly in the garden will quickly catch up.Seed packets usually recommend precise spacing, such as at 2-foot intervals, but you will get a better display if you simply scatter the seeds and let the plants support each other as they grow. You can always thin if you need to, moving the extra plants to another part of the garden.Wait until all danger of frost has passed, before sowing or transplanting outdoors. Cosmos grow very quickly but can be killed by a late frost, so don't rush it.
