I love this color!
I didn't plant these cosmos this year and didn't really want them in the front of this flower bed. I thought about pulling them up when they first emerged, they looked so healthy and strong, I decided against it. I'm so glad I did, they have been so pretty and have been a perfect addition to my butterfly garden. I am attempting to keep them dead-headed to prevent them from taking over the garden next summer.

Sun-kissed Cosmos

Those cosmos have amazing colors. Sometimes what you think are weeds are beautiful in their own right.

Whew! Deadheading prolific cosmos could be a full-time job. Well, even if you do get a lot of volunteers throughout your garden next spring, you have one consolation: the flowers are absolutely gorgeous!
