I love my cosmos!
I just wanted to tell everyone about my success with a 3yr old packet of Cosmos seeds. I planted them willy-nilly in late June without much thought to actually seeing any growth considering the seeds' age. Imagine my surprise when they finally started to sprout! Now I really wish I would have saved that seed packet because I would love to know the variety I planted so I can plant more, more, more! Luckily I have been able to harvest a few seeds already from this beautiful flower. Mine is now about 7 FEET tall and is wonderfully lush and full with gorgeous white, purple, pink, and varigated color blooms. I'm seeing new blooms every day and check daily now for more seeds. I think this is the most exciting flower I have ever planted - and best yet it was so easy to grow! I've done nothing whatsoever to it. Just stuck the seeds in the seeds in the ground and basically forgot about it.
Does anyone know what variety I might have? Just curious. I'll be buying every packet/variety I can find from now on :)
