Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Mar 24, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Z. haageana is a synonym for Z. angustifolia = Z. linearis. Many plants in commerce under this name appear to be hybrids with Z. elegans.

Mexican zinnia in their rustic color combinations make excellent cut flowers. Blooms are 2-inches wide on stems 12-inches tall. They're a simple and easy care annual for the cottage garden.
