Don't forget that cosmos (sensation strain) usually reaches 5-6 feet by
summer's end - depending on soil, rainfall, etc. It's another self-sower. I
had a friend who bought quite a few in flats one year. Gardeners came out of
the woodwork to tell her she was crazy - (one pack of seeds will sow a
garden full often). 15 years later she still has cosmos everywhere - and
this year she sprinkled preen down in early spring to deter weeds - but
cosmos sprang up unimpeded.

I had wanted to grow some tobacco plants this year but didn't get around
to ordering seeds. I'm in Zone 5 Chicago but in the summer can an
annual really tell the difference between zone 5 and zone 9? I really
wish nurseries around here would carry some of these exotic annuals
(well tobacco isn't that exotic or uncommon but it is around here).
