How come is the monarch butterfly attracted to the seeds? I have cosmos and monarchs do come but (I think) not for the seeds but for the flowers and nectar. I suggest the author should cite the reference and/or explain why the butterfly is attracted to the seeds. I think the information (changed and made untrue) came from this site: http://plantanswers.tamu.edu/flowers/cosmos/cosmos.html I will change it back to what it should be Pro bug catcher 13:23, 19 September 2006 (UTC) gf.hkmf;lymjfmg,d,mnlfkgmn.The thjdkfdh catwent in t thwe store to nbuty some very deliciuos scosos and i luv having such pretty things in my backyard like ctas and dogs and butterflies and rabbits and butts and boobies and vaginiaz and cockz and knivesz and guns.

Drought tolerance?[edit]

I disagree with the current description of this plant as not tolerating drought, even though it's referenced to a book. This is based on a search of cosmos bipinnatus drought site:.edu (sorry no permalink, don't know why). For example, Colorado State University's extension service site lists it as one of 'some drought-tolerant annuals' [1] and the University of Georgia's extension service has it in a 'Ornamental Plants Known to Have Above Average Drought Tolerance' [2]. Of course drought is a relative term, the authors of the book may have been talking about really arid conditions. So how can we rework this? Novickas (talk) 00:02, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
