These guys love the Florida heat

Florida's heat and summer sun makes these guys laugh! These flowers profusely self sow and I never need to water them, even in the middle of the summer. The blooms last for an extended period of time and a single plant will bloom for weeks. The butterflies and bees love this variety.

This plant is so delightful! I could not be more pleased with it. The colors are amazing. I planted these seeds in a box for cut flowers, and they are quite prolific. First time growing cosmos, will definitely buy again.
