Cosmos

Written in Chinese characters, cosmos has the meaning of "autumn cherry". These pink flowers that bloom in the autumn remind one of cherry blossoms, which is likely how they got their name. Their delicate, slender form swaying in the autumn breeze makes them appear to be even more beautiful. Actually, these flowers have an immense ability to survive. For instance, a few days after being felled by a typhoon, they will begin to rise again from the tips of their stems.
