It's a good little low growing annual zinnia which is also pretty. Holds up to the heat and humidity well down here in Houston and we've had a lot of rain this summer. Easy to grow from seed, my picture reflects some of the color variations I observed from seed. But they are still very pretty and blend in well with the overall effect.
