Cosmidium 'Philippine' is one of my favorite annuals. It blooms all summer until frost with small, daisy-like flowers that are chocolate-brown edged in gold. It self sows on bare soil, but it's not invasive.
Cosmidium burridgeanum has been grown in English gardens since the nineteenth century, where it was once thought to be a hybrid. It was later discovered to be a Texas wildflower.
Cosmidium 'Philippine' is similar to Cosmidium 'Brunette', but the plants are more compact. Also known as Burridge's Greenthread and Thelesperma burridgeanum.
Sowing Cosmidium 'Philippine' Seeds:
Sow indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Or sow outdoors after the last frost. Barely cover the seeds. Full sun. Spacing 12". Easy to grow.
