Cosmos

Cosmos are sun-loving perennials. The foliage is airy and the flowers have daisy-like petals that surround its yellow center. They commonly grow in shades of pink, purple, and white, as well as, orange, burgundy and yellow. Blooming throughout the summer months, they attract birds, bees, and butterflies to your garden. Some varieties can grow up to almost 6 feet tall.
