Gardeners' Notes:

One of my favorite annual flowers. Scatter some seeds and they fill in those bare spots between perennials, and provide cute and easy bouquets all summer long.

From your friends at Botanical Interests: These old-fashioned heirloom zinnias live up to their name. You can cut flowers continuously for bouquets and more and more just keep coming back until first frost. 2 1/2" double flowers in vibrant shades of pink, rose, magenta, scarlet, orange, yellow, and cream on 2'-3' tall plants. These tough, but pretty bloomers withstand drought and attract butterflies. (To deter powdery mildew, water by soaking the ground (not from overhead) to keep leaves dry and make sure that sprinklers do not hit them overnight or in the early morning.)

I only had one zinnia seed germinate for me this year and it was a pink pumila. I had never grown zinnias before. It grew into a large, healthy plant that is still blooming heavily in mid-October. I am anxiously waiting to collect some seed for next year.

Once these started blooming they did not stop until frost! They were actually the last blooming thing left in my garden this fall. Beautiful orange, yellow, pink and red, on nice bushy plants. I wasn't very religious on watering them, and they still were gorgeous. Very pleased!
