Flower of the Month - October - Cosmos

The official flower of the month for October is Cosmos.   Cosmos bippanatus, also known as Mexican Aster and Chocolate Cosmo are

available Summer through Fall and come in many beautiful colors and patterns.  You can find them in white, red, pink, brown, orange, yellow and purple, and in solids, stripes, or bi-colored.  They are pretty on their own, but make a lovely complement in bouquets with other flowers.   They come from the Latin word Kosmos, meaning beautiful.   The blooms are very fragrant, and chocolate cosmos even smell like chocolate.   Use them in your wedding bouquet, and we can also paint them onto your aisle runner, invitations, place cards, and other wedding accessories to make everything co-ordinate!
