Cosmos is very easy to grow- toss the seeds around and they'll practically take care of themselves. They're very pretty- always a light and feathery appearance. Be warned though- some varieties get extremely tall - over six feet. Don't bother to stake them though- they'll wave and flop around in the wind but they take care of themselves well.
If you successfully negotiate with your chipmunks, do let me know your secret. Mine do not listen to me at all.
I don't know about the chipmunk factor, but I love growing them amongst my tomatoes. One year I put tomatoes, cosmos and nasturtium underneath and as the nasturtium went rampant I though you idiot, why did i do that? but tomatoes didn't seem to mind at all, and had a bumper crop. Everyone likes company ;)maybe the cosmos brought the bees in.
