Hi Alam,

This is a Purple Cosmos...a favourite pick for cultivation due to its ease of growth, spectacular flowers and attractiveness to butterflies/ bumble bees.

Good capture and tfs


Hi Mohd,
I like your Cosmos bipinnatus, commonly called the Cosmos or the "Mexican Aster".
It is a medium sized flowering herbaceous plant and it is also growing in my garden here in Germany in summer.
I like the colour, thanks and greetings

Hi Mohd,

This cosmos is well portrayed with good colour and detail. This occurs wild in South Africa where it is almost considered a weed. The story is that the British troops brought the seed here with the horse feed during the Anglo Boer war. Occurs in white, pink and a scarcer red colour.
