The Cosmos in the Garden

Yes, you can see the Cosmos in a garden! In fact you can see the cosmos, the cosmos flower at any rate, all over temperate North America. It is not a pretentious or fussy flower. It is simple, joyous, radiant, hardy & prolific. It blooms from July, through August, and through September until frost.

As many gardens fade, cosmos are incongruously summery & brilliantly showy, but with no pretense of elegance or fussiness.

Cosmos simply bloom, and show us all that beauty can protrude into almost any place at almost any time!
