That's what I thought it was at first as I'd forgotten I'd planted one of these Mexican sunflowers in that spot! @kez001uk

Thanks Shelley. A big late for the first one to flower, but hopefully there's time for a few more 🤞 @ShelleySnyder

Cheers Chris 🧡 I agree, the colour attracted me into getting some, although they struggle a bit here in an average summer @midnightgardener

@jeatacake And now Autumn is suddenly upon us there's that chill in the air. I saw some lovely blue Hydrangeas today but thought no way. The last one I had the frost killed it 😕Let's hope yours fares well 😊😊

@joanboston they look more substantial but have a very similar looking flower to the orange cosmos 😊
