Zinnias were a major part of my very first garden as a child in Mass. I think they are beautiful and have a special place in my heart.

A neighbor of mine grows a huge long row of zinnia's every year that is a show stopper. I am going to have to suggest these one's to them!

I WON?!?! YAY! Thanks so much DG'er for suggesting this picture! Kell, I have the same addiction! I had this var bloom today. It was the purest white speckled with blood red. To me, Zinnias look just too happy to be killed by frost (their mortal enemy). I had a yellow bloom today to. It looked flueroscent! Thanks so much!! ~Daniel
