A long-lived dame of the American flower garden, introduced more than 80 years ago, and still burning bright at more than 3' tall and 4" across. As scarlet as red can get. Zinnia flowers are a must-plant annual for the butterfly garden and a favourite flower of monarchs, swallowtails, and those hyper-winged hummingbirds.
Zinnia may well be for flower growers what ?lettuce is for truck farmers—indispensable. It must always be part of the crop mix, and it must be sown every 2 weeks for a total of about 6 sowings per year in order to maintain the best quality at the market. Like lettuce, the number of varieties and types can be overwhelming, but so can the possibilities for breeders and growers. The plant invites experimentation through all its natural variation. Attractive to so many bees and butterflies one wonders if you are in a garden or an insectary. Originated in Mexico.
