I love zinnias. So beautiful and easy to grow.
Sherry Do direct seed some of these. I did plant some in ground from plants. They are still blooming. Not as nice.But drought ,coons ,90 mph winds 107* temps-glad to have anything blooming.
Beautiful happy colours,..what a great lot of seeds those were,..you were well rewarded.
I just love your zinnias.Zinnias were my first flower that I grew when I moved here 40+ years ago.I had big red ones then & for several years. Now I lean toward pink ones.I
might have $$ daylilies but I will always plant zinnias. About the best butterfly magnet there is.And,don't they make a cheerful bouquet ? Haha,seen in photos,I seldom cut my flowers.I always think I will plant some just for cutting but don't seem to get it done.
sewNsow...I don't cut my flowers either. I would rather walk around the garden or have them on the patio to look at. I did cut some calla lilys for my Mom this year and that has been it.
I have yet to see a butterfly on the zinnias...I have had them fly up to it but they have never stayed....I sure hope I get some butterflys that decide to rest and enjoy them so I can get some pictures.
Very nice flowers. I never knew what they looked like. Maybe I will try them next year.

Look at that! Thanks for the treat, they are sooo nice.
I just discovered them. Bought a bunch that were dying for like a dollar a piece and in less than a week they were the prettiest and healthiest plants in my yard. Theyve come back so quickly, I'm hooked. Such easy plants.
I love mine too!
I planted Zinnias for the first time this year too. I am new to gardening, and I bought one of those encap kits where you just sprinkle it on the ground without tilling or anything...I was really nervous about it, but they came up in a bunch of different colors and they are gorgeous! I will also never be without Zinnias again! :-D
