Cosmos

 

This is the dwarf seed strain of the exceptionally floriferous and beautiful, traditional summer annual. Flowers come in a mix that ranges from white to dark pink on plants that grow to no taller than two feet over delicate-looking but tough, lacey, green foliage. Use them in annual beds or to brighten and give color to mixed plantings.
