The counties in which I spent the weekend had medians on the 4 lane roads filled with cosmos: pink, wine and a few white. They were stunning despite a prolonged drought.
In the mail today was a Thompson&Morgan seed catalog WITH a $10.00 off offer! I had one cosmos plant, pink, from the seeds I planted last spring. I will try again, the seeds were cheap and perhaps old.
It's almost time to plant poppy and larkspur seeds. We need rain before the seeds go out.
