Cosmos of the universe?...nope, just a Daisy!

Cosmos is a native of Mexico. It has a Greek name (derived from Kosmos, meaning beautiful.) This variety, Cosmos bipinnatus, has feathery green leaves and daisy-like flower heads in shades of red, pink or white with yellow centers. They like full sun and a well drained soil. Keeping the flowers cut and deadheading, will guarantee a long season of bloom. Cosmos make great cut flowers, especially if you put them in warm water first, then transfer them to cool water after a few minutes!
