pretty petals – cosmos

July 31, 2014

My favourite kind of flower is the kind that you can grow, without fail, right in your own backyard.  Cosmos definitely fits into that category.  Cosmos are annual flowers in our Southern Ontario climate, but you may find that,  from time to time, they reseed themselves.  These sun loving garden flowers grow a magnificent 3 feet high and bush out considerably to a girth of 12-18″.  And did I mention that they are incredibly pretty?  To be honest, I cannot tell you what part of cosmos I like the most because they have so much going for them.  Is it their spectacular height?  The frilly foliage?  Their  perfectly shaped blossoms?  Their flowery abundance all summer long? Their easy care?  At any rate, they are undeniably a wonderful choice if you are considering a cutting garden.  Enjoy a few pictures of the stunning white cosmos that I am growing organically in my own cuttig garden.
