KENIKIR KUNING - YELLOW COSMOS

This is my kenikir kuning or yellow cosmos (Cosmos sulphureus).
 I planted it near the orange cosmos in front of my bedroom.





A simple flower.
Easy growing.... low maintenance...
So lovely...





I planted it as an annual in my garden.
Actually nothing special with this flower, but I really love it.





This is the double petal variety.
I took the seeds from a road side in September.
It was sown directly, and soon grew.
Maybe it will give me more flowers if I plant it on a sunny area.




The flowers give me shine...
Bright, cheer... and warm.
Have a warm  weekend.

  2. Piękny kwiat! Wygląda jak małe słoneczko w ogrodzie. A ja z utęsknieniem wypatruję wiosny i czekam kiedy mój ogród znów zakwitnie. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.

    1. We don't have winter, so I can't imagine how cold there. I think almost gardeners plant cosmos in their gardens. Coloring our gardens
