Characterization is the process of observing and identifying the physical, biological, and chemical properties of plants that aim to determine the characteristics of a plant. The purpose of this research is to ind the characteristics of each accession of Cosmos spp. and get accession of Cosmos spp. which has the potential to be developed or used as varieties material assembly. The research was conducted at the AIC (Agrotechnology Innovation Center) of Universitas Gadjah Mada in March-July 2019.
