I like to grow annual flowers in various containers. This year, cosmos, zinnia, and sunflowers have all done well in their flower pots.
I’ve planted these cosmos and zinnia varieties before and they have always grown well in containers. The sunflower is a new variety for me, a dwarf variety that produces flowers that are only a few inches in size.
I have to water these large plants often, typically every two or three days depending on the weather.
The sunflowers and cosmos have been attracting a lot of bees of various species. The cosmos also attracted butterflies in past years.
