KENIKIR ORANYE - ORANGE COSMOS

The orange cosmos (Cosmos sulphureus) is blooming.
Here, this flower is called kenikir kuning.
I can see it from my bedroom, through the window.
This is a simple flower but so lovely.

    1. I think the pink type is edible variety. The pink type is called suring, kenikir or patraseli in Indonesia. This orange variety is much bigger than the pink one.

  2. Such a nice color, reminds me of our buttercup though maybe a little darker yellow.

    1. This is an usual plant that we can find it on the home garden or road side. A very simple flower, and easy growing.

  3. They seem to be doing very well. Here you can sometimes see coreopsis growing wild along country roads. They are a native plant. But of course here they bloom in summer.

    1. The pink and white cosmos grow well in highland tropics. But look so poor in low land.
