    Good Evening everyone, Have you all ever seen the Uproar rose Zinnia's? You all probably have but it was so beautiful, This one is bright red like a rose, and the other one was like a bright maroon,This is the first time I have ever seen them , And believe me I will be getting lots more, I wish it was spring so I could get them now, I'm like a kid in a candy shop.This is a pic. of one, It was about 4 inches wide and real thick.It kind of lost some of it's color now but still ok. I'm not saying how pretty it was because it's mine, It could have been anyone's and I would have thought how beautiful it was.What do you all think of them? I have seen some really pretty ones on the stew this spring and I love all of them.

    I love Zinnia's!
    They are drought tolerant, deer proof and gorgeous :)

    Great link Toni!
    I usually look for the large "State Fair" Zinnia, but the others look great too!
    I've never seen the Scabiosa flowered ones before...I'll have to try them next year!

    That really is a cool Zinnia, and you took a great photo of it. I love the vibrant color!
    Zinnias are such wonderful, tough, summer flowers! I have the "cut and come again" which are not as big and showy as yours, but they're are doing great despite the heat here now.

    Beautiful!! I love 'em!! Can't wait for Glenda to see it!! She'll like it too. For some reason zinnias always make me think of Glenda :p Guess it's because she sent me a mess of seeds one time ;)
