Cosmos are best grown during the coolest time of the year here in Miami. They aren't really the most climate appropriate plant but they do produce, and so for those of you who absolutely love their blooms its worth giving them a go. The whispy plants can topple over if they dont get enough sun, and make sure theres sun for them to make flowers too! Enjoy these delicate little beauties in your winter garden.
