Deeply colored 3" blooms are beauteous in contrast when paired with white flowers and silver-foliage plants. A Fleuroselect Novelty award winner, this cosmos is a real standout in the garden or a vase, and butterflies love them, too. Blooms start out red-wine colored and turn to dusky rose as they age. Growing cosmos is an easy way to add color to your garden, as they require little attention and are drought tolerant.

These are a beautiful deep, rich color when they first open, and fade gradually to an equally lovely color. The foliage is lacy and airy, and they find their way through my mixed border to the sun, blooming along the way. Cosmos are host plants to some insects that eat leaf miners, which my roses have a bit. Next year I plan to sprinkle these thickly under the roses and let them keep self seeding, along with alyssum.
