A raft of these started blooming under the trees in front in late March. A few have been scattered in the back yard as well.

Large, long stemmed Zinnias have always been one of my favorite cutting flowers. All the beauty of Dahlias without the fuss.

Starting three varieties from seed in 2015: Giant Cactus-Flowered (seed from Shumway), Giant Flowered Mix (Burpee), and State Fair Mixed (Burpee).
