A packet of Giant Cactus Mixed Colors Zinnia seeds cost a quarter at the dollar store. Started early indoors, planted out in a bare spot just right for a tiny row of Zinnias they'll bloom until frost.
First to bloom was a lovely golden orange, followed by this and now shades of yellow and a bright pink.
Butterflies are mostly ignoring these in favor of Lantana, Tithonia and Pentas but toward fall Zinnias will be a favorite as the tropicals fade a little.
Happy Bloom Day. Join the fun at May Dreams Gardens.
