Cosmos are a symbol of order, peace and serenity. The name Cosmos comes from the Greek kosmos, meaning order, harmony or the world. Not only is order and harmony expressed in the blossom's symmetry, grace and simplicity, but also in the symmetrically balanced, regularly-doubled production of leaf and blossom stems.


OCT - COSMOS & MARIGOLDS-

Cosmos are a symbol of order, peace and serenity which is expressed in the blossoms' symmetry, grace and simplicity, and also in the symmetrically balanced, regularly-doubled production of leaf and blossom stems.

Marigolds symbolized despair and grief over a loved one. It may be surprising that such a cheerful flower is associated in that way. However, in many cultures the neon-bright orange and yellow hues that represent the sunrays guide their dearly departed. Those same colors represent the beauty and warmth of the rising Sun and its power to resurrect. Today we focus more on the sunny colors of the marigold, representing optimism and prosperity.
