That is a cute flower, but doesn't look like a Cosmos to me? Maybe it is a different cosmos from the ones I know. Smiling

The parent plants were regular cosmos, about 3-4 feet high flowers a few inches high. These are seeds that sprouted and are mini, perhaps reverted to wild state, or due to cold weather matured super fast and mature height ended up being really tiny!
