I love watching these colorful and dainty flowers sway in the breeze! The butterflies and bees are always drawn to them and they add amazing and delicate color to the garden. They grow fairly quickly and do well in Florida's summer heat.

I love this cosmos variety - the various colors are all so pretty and bright with the yellow contrasting center - the foliage is wonderful in arrangements -I won a blue ribbon for these too! They reseed themselves - the plants are as tall as I am, covered with flowers! I've found big fluffy bumblebees just snoozing on the flowers - they love them too!
