Wildflowers in the gardenThese are wild flowers I planted this summer. I was so pleasantly surprised at how beautiful they were! My new puppy loved them too, which is why I had to build the beautiful wood fence to keep him out!

They are Cosmos, very easy to grow, they are suppose to be annuals, but I had them return the second year.

These are Cosmos, but I don't know if they are annuals or perrenials. As blooms begin to fade you can dead head them and more blooming will occur. When they go to seed you can save some in a paper bag for next year, or you can try & reseed this year.

Scratch fresh dirt, lay out seeds & gently push into the soil-do not cover. If annuals pull out after 1st frost & plant from seeds in the spring.

Yup, they are cosmos, but they also come in white with the leaves like the picture you ghave. There is another variety that is of a yellow and orange mix.

After the flower head die back, you can either pinch them back or let them seed. Their seeds are slender and dark.

Beautiful flowers, they are one of my husband's favorites, he has his own little plot with just cosmos in it next to our rose.

They have now come up with one called "Chocolate" Cosmo . I have seen it at Do It Center once. I love these . I have had a couple of seeds grow into plants(the lavender and the white ones) that grew past the roofline a few years ago..GG Vi

Fabulous flower! Originally wild, now cultivated and sold as plants as well as seeds. There are many varieties... ranging in all shades of white, pink to maroon and then some.

There is a shell variety where the petals are curved, there is a shredded variety, there is a double variety. Love them all... Hope you do. They look lovely in your garden.

They are indeed Cosmos. My dearly loved late mother-in-law had a beautiful garden full of them. They are actually annuals, but will self-seed themselves if you let them go to seed. If you leave them alone, they will come back every year, and spread.

When my kids were little they always wanted to pick bouquets for me, so I let them pick the Cosmos. It. made my kids happy.

It gave us a lovely bouquet for the dinner table, and by picking them the plants made more flowers.

If you plant these close to a window you can watch the goldfinch birds. They like to eat the seeds.

While driving to work one day years ago, I noticed these beautiful flowers were growing on the side of the road. I watched for them go to seed so I could stop and "borrow" a few.

I planted them in a sunny spot and eventually they grew and bloomed beautifully! I can't wait to see them again this summer!

I just cut these wildflowers and roses this morning, Friday, July 23, 2010. They are from my miniature rose garden in my front yard. The wildflowers are from my hummingbird garden in our back yard. I just cannot seem to stop buying flowers.

I was so happy to find that wildflowers are so easy to grow in our area which is northeastern Tennessee. I received a sample packet from a wildflower nursery online and put them out in the garden in my concrete stones.

Here in the suburbs of NYC, we have no sidewalks, but, must maintain the area. This year, rather than keeping it clear, I decided to try to a wildflower garden.
