"Cosmos bipinnatus" (Asteraceae)

I think they are cosmos. I used to plant cosmos, but they reseed so prolifically they were taking over!

In Canada we call these beautiful flowers Cosmos , they are delightful as they last until a hard frost

I think that this may be from the Aster family (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteraceae). Lovely photos on your blog. -- Good Acres

Hi Heather,
what I like especially with these is their delicacy and their strength at the same time. Wind apparently cannot destroy them - they just bend graciously and stand up again...
