Cosmos bipinnatus is a Mexican species that produced large pink flowers through the summer. Over the years it has been selected
to produce a wider range of colour and I followed a whim and bought a packet of seeds of 'Picotee' ('Sensation Picotee').
They were planted a bit later than I would have liked, and in the end they stayed in the greenhouse for the summer, where they enjoyed
the heat. They were fun, and from time to time I like to grow something just for the amusement of big colourful flowers.
