My Cup and Saucer cosmos have Seashells amongst them Balc. I'll take some pics of the Cups and Saucers, tho they're not as lovely as these..

They are all very nice it's just that perhaps we take more notice of the novelty ones when they are first introduced.

Last year my son had a "mystery" fern-like leafy plant among some plants he had bought at a nursery. He sent me a photo of it & I, correctly it turned out, identified it as a Cosmos! When it flowered he was very impressed by it & so this year he has more Cosmos plants!

I've taken a couple of photos of them as well as I'm looking after his garden while he & his family are away on holiday.

Well I know exactly how he feels, some of my cosmos are like shrubs with thick stems and dense ferny leaves, just beginning to bud up now!
Enjoy his garden..
