Yellow Cosmos (Cosmos sulphureus) is a perennial and native of Central America that grows abundantly in the Philippines. A relative of sunflowers, asters and daisies, it blooms over tall, feathery foliage all summer long. Cosmos attracts birds and butterflies, including the Monarch butterfly. It has anti-malarial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. ~ Joseph Addison
