    Appreciate for the helpful link Jim! Haha, for all my ‘blah blah’ of my guessing, this still might be end up blooming into something else. Reservation is always ready for ‘Crow Dining’.

    Thanks, for the info, Laura. See the link below for pics of cosmos sulphurea identified for me in an earlier post. http://www.walterreeves.com/name-that-plant/banks-of-the-hooch/

    Hi Jim, in my garden, Cosmos sulphureus reseeds themselves quite readily. The reseeded plants are much taller. The leaves and main stalk are also bigger than the original cultivar. This was quite a surprise to see the difference in sizes. Mine are growing at the present and look very similar to the plant above. Wish I could attach pictures on this post to show the similarity between the two.

    I considered that, but didn’t think the fingering in the leaves were finely enough cut, and that the leases were too long, based on ones I’ve seen. But maybe there’s that much variation. If it’s cosmos, you should see lots of yellow/gold daisy-type flowers following. But that’s possible also even if it’s not cosmos, as it does generally appear to be a plant in the sunflower/aster (Compositae) family.

    Maybe Yellow Cosmos (Cosmos sulphureus). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmos_sulphureus
