Love this plant!

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Started Cosmos "Cosmic" Yellow this year from seed to fill in some holes in my butterfly garden. Wonderful plant! Mine have grown to about 15" - 20" tall and 12" - 15" wide and are covered in blooms. The color has a great "throw" and can be seen from anywhere in the yard! After their first (very prolific!) bloom, they started to "stall" a bit. I deadheaded them, gave some liquid fertilizer, and in a week or two they were blooming well again. These are planted in the North Dallas, TX area, zone 7b. Highly recommended.
