Cosmos Bipinnatus:

We normally don’t advocate the use of annual bedding plants, but then there are bedding plants and then some really good bedding plants! This is in the really good, must have category.

It has the softest touchy feely foliage ever, you can sow oodles of them everywhere as they take up hardly any space, the flowers are definitely the most happy of flowers and if that wasn’t enough, they flower really late in the summer and provide fantastic landing pads for hungry bees!

So if you aren’t tempted to grow some by all that…well we give up! We like them so much we would use them in every design, but they do like sunny position, so we can’t use them everywhere.
