    Beautiful flower that added pops of color to my garden. Sometimes finicky with germinating but have planted several times and overall was able to get many success plants. The description is accurate- this plant can definitely grow in poor soil conditions. I have an area along the border of my garden that I wanted to hide but I know the soil is terrible. I was really impressed how the cosmo survived there and the area is no longer an eye-sore but a beautiful patch of flowers! Give these a try!
