cosmos huge. . . no blooms yet
I planted cosmo seeds on the west side of my house (direct sow) this spring, I also bought a few mature plants to give color until the others grew. Needless to say, the store bought ones are very short some didn't even survive, but the ones I grew from seed are the biggest I've ever seen in cosmos. They are over 3' tall and the stocks are probably 1 1/2" in diameter. I am quite impressed, but it is August and there are no blooms yet, not even any buds. I hope they do bloom, those seeds will definitley be a keeper.
