My new favorite flower

I love Cosmos, they are just gorgous here in the fall, but I always hate how tall and gangly they look when they finally bloom. This year I grew a dwarf variety and I just LOVE it. I want to grow it every year from now on.

Mary,
Beautiful pic and color of cosmos. Is this one dwarf? and what is the name.
2 of my all time favorites are my dwarf orange and daydream.

Fran, they are the Dwarf Sonata Mix from Pinetree Seeds. I absolutely love them. The only way I could love them more would be if they started blooming in the spring LOL.

Beautiful dwarf Cosmos!

I purchased those seeds from Pinetree and look forward to wintersowing them next year.
