Also known as Yellow Cosmos. See our previous article here.
Our bed of Cosmos have bloomed for most of the season. They are called yellow but the shades include a fairly deep orange, as well.
Cosmos are an annual grown from seed in the spring. However, they often self-seed and return the next year (but the colors may not be a bright). The signature of the plant is the small “head and crown” in the center of the daisy-like bloom.
Here are a few more photos of our Cosmos:
If you want flowers but you don’t have a “green thumb” then this is the plant for you. It is super easy to start and grow. The Floridata website has more information about the plant.
