Delicate Cosmos


(Toledo, OH) I planted quite a few Cosmos seeds this year, and I was pleasantly surprised at the number of beautiful flowers that appeared in my yard. The stalks of these members of the Aster family grow about seven feet high, and we have had dozens of these delicate blossoms for over six weeks now.

The scientific name of the plant is Cosmos bipinnatus, though some folks prefer to call them the "Mexican aster." I had to pause in the middle of getting an insurance quote to appreciate the simple beauty of these flowers, some of which I cut for a table decoration.
