Cosmos bipinnatus

Post by Hamad Ahmed Kisana » July 11th, 2013, 6:38 am

Botanical Name Cosmos bipinnatus
Family Asteraceae
Genus Cosmos
Specie bipinnatus
Local Name in Urdu
Common Name cosmos-garden cosmos or Mexican aster
Life Cycle Annuals
Cultivar Name
Fragrant or Not no
Category(Bush/Vine/Tree) annual flowering plant
Height 1–4 ft.
Spacing 8-24 in.
Flowering Months spring
Flower Color Pink
Red
White/Near White
Growing Areas All Pakistan
Frost Tender yes
Exposure full sun
Soil pH tolerent
Propagation by seed
Uses ornamental plant
Other Details I believe cosmos to be a "must have" for every garden. They are a beautiful flower.... now with so many fun varieties .... and so easy to grow! Simply scatter seeds in the garden and they will grow like mad!Best grown in poor soil; rich feeding leads to very big branches with poor flowering which tend to be floppy. Deadheading prolongs flowering.The plant height varies from 2–4 ft (0.61–1.2 m). The cultivated varieties appear in shades of pink and purple as well as white. Its foliage is finely cut into threadlike segments. When flowering, the plant can become top heavy. This problem is alleviated when grown in groups, as the bipinnate leaves interlock, and the colony supports itself.
