I have one lonely Cosmos plant that took root in my garden, and then fell over because it was so tall and heavy that it needed to be propped up. I thought it wouldn’t flower after falling over, but it did produce three lovely flowers, obviously much loved by these pesky beetles that eat holes in every flower they find!
Interesting info: Historians believe that the seeds of the flower, originally from Mexico, were brought in with bags of horse-feed for the English troops during the Anglo-Boer War.
