About cosmos ‘sensation mixed’

Cosmos are freely flowering annual plants that are easy to grow simply by sowing seeds in the garden after any danger of frost has passed. They will reach full maturity within two months. The flowers sit atop long slender stems and form a cloud of color that not only looks attractive throughout the summer but also attracts bees, butterflies and birds to your garden.

In The Records

Spanish priests cultivated Cosmos plants in their mission gardens and were so taken with their evenly placed petals they christened the flower ‘Cosmos’ after the greek word for ‘ordered universe of harmony’.
