This popular, pure white annual cosmos makes a great filler plant for a sunny, moist but well-drained border. As long as it's dead-headed regularly it will produce a succession of graceful, pure white, saucer-shaped flowers up to 10cm (4in) in diameter from June to October and masses of feathery, mid-green leaves.
