Cosmoses (cosmos bipinnatus) are my favourite annual flowers.
I love them for their typical shape of petals, like in a children's painting.
I love them because they're easy to grow, they self-seed and they flower till the first frosts.
Most of them grow high (1,2m or even 2m), but nowadays you can buy shorter, dwarf varieties that will fit in any garden.
They attract bees and butterflies.
I absolutely adore them :)
