Yellow Cosmos


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.

Yay, your yellow flower is sooo pretty, and your photos of it are lovely. Can't recall noticing it, though, and that puzzles me... Yellow Cosmos is nice name, too.

[I added another photo to my post to show the fruit of the kamias (I forgot I had it!) And isn't the Today's Flower linky you linked to from last week?]
