Cosmos

Cosmos bipinnatus

Description:

Found in a meadow in southern Ohio - not sure if someone planted some and they spread or if they were "garden escapes" but they are considered an invasive non-native species up north. Very pretty though!

Habitat:

Meadow area surrounded by forest.

Yeah, I love them! Even though they are not native.

Invasive, but they attract lots of butterflies and moths. We put them in our garden where nothing much grows and they come up every year without any help apart from watering occasionally.
