Yoonki's Tropical Garden
Cosmos sulphureus (Yellow Cosmos)
to Bangkok Metropolitan Authority - who planted Canna Indica and Cosmos on the
deserted spaces all of the city to hide/avoid the lands changes to waste depot -
you can see this nice looking flower everywhere in Bangkok.
Most of Korean has bright memories with this flowers which is almost symbolic to
crisp days in Autumn.
I flunked a few classes in the University and have to stay another one more semester.
Koreans calls the one semester delayed graduates "Cosmos Graduation" for they released in Autumn, with the background with this lovely flowers.
I got some details about cosmos from Virtual Garden;
Few plants grow as rapidly as cosmos, and fewer still have such graceful flowers.
The wide, serrated petals circling yellow centers may be pink, red or white.
The foliage is delicate and feathery.
The species known as yellow cosmos, which seldom grows more than 3 feet tall, used to begin flowering so late in the season that fall frosts often nipped the first blossoms. But now there are early flowering yellow, orange and red varieties.
