It is possible that it is a mutation, but it might be an expression of Aster Yellows virus.

This is a recent new zinnia flowerform that appeared in my zinnia patch. I have been crossing it with similar "toothy" petaled zinnias to get more zinnias with similar flowers. I hope to have a whole patch of them next year so I can concentrate on getting different colors in this flowerform. For want of a better name, I have been calling this a "Spider Toothy". The future strain will get a hopefully better name.
