We aren't sure of the exact name of this variety of cosmos but it looks like they are a Mexican variety of Sulphur cosmos due to their very large growing habit. If you've grown delicate little pink and white cosmos from the north before this plant is WAY BIGGER and more like a flowering shrub than a puny cut flower variety. One of our garden clients, Rachel from Miami Waterkeeper saw this plant growing at the Miami Zoo and was so impressed by its size, height and the flowers that she grabbed a handful of seeds and passed them on to us. We grew a few out, fell in love too, and have saved enough seeds of our own to start propagating the plants for sale. Cosmos don't last long in the vase but they are beautiful while they last and beautiful on the plant too if you just want to enjoy them outside.
