Apricot cosmos blooming on the patio

October 25, 2017

 

The Cosmos bipinnatus "Apricot" plant is filled with tall stalks of flowers.

I almost gave up seeing any blossoms on this plant.

It was full with fern-like foliage all through the summer with not even a hint of buds on it.

 

And now here are the blossoms, on stalks about 5 feet tall.

They look more pinkish than apricot but still are lovely, providing pollen and nectar for bees and butterflies.

 

They should bloom through November.
