Also known as Cosmos bipinnatus and are essential for summer gardens. They grow between 1 to 4 feet with single or double blooms that come in many colors. Due to their different height when they grow, best to go in the back of a descending garden or in the middle of an island garden to add frilly texture. When planting, they prefer hot dry conditions in poor to average soil. These self-seed which new growth for years to come. If you are not wanting them to grow tall, deadheading of the flowers as they appear. This forces growth to lower on the stem which makes it stronger with more flowers.
