How are Cosmos Supposed to Grow?

By Anonymous

I started my cosmos from seed in March, which now I'm thinking was a little too early for these guys. When I went to plant them in pots they had long lanky stems. As of right now they kind of look like ground cover because they can't stand up. Should they lie of the ground like that or should I prop them up? Thanks!
