" Cupcakes White" Cosmos bipinnatus

I love to plant cosmos every year.

They are native to the southwestern US and Mexico, and provide nectar and pollen to bees and butterflies.

And look at this, Cupcakes White.

I've never seen these before, until I saw them at Annies Annuals.

This is the first blossom on the plant in our native plant garden.

This particular cosmos should grow to three feet tall, and two feet wide.

But since it is planted in clay soil, it may not grow as large as it would in rich soil or in a container.

It just is oh, so lovely.
