Garden cosmos - Cosmos bipinnatus
Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand
Native to Mexico, cosmos is a popular, low-maintenance, late-blooming, showy annual that typically grows 2-4’ tall on erect stems clad with pinnatisect, medium green leaves that are deeply cut into threadlike segments. Single, saucer-shaped, daisy-like flowers (to 2-4” diameter) with red, pink or white rays and yellow centers bloom freely from early summer to frost. In hot and humid summer climates, plants may slow down considerably in late summer. Source
