Flower Spotlight: Zinnia

Zinnias are a fascinating sunflower variety within the daisy family. Native to scrubby grasslands in Mexico, South America, and the southwestern United States, zinnias get their name from Johann Gottfried Zinn, who was a German Master Botanist.

These annual blooms are grown in either mounding shrub or upright stem form. The plants range in height from 4" to 40" tall, and the leaves are usually linear or ovate in shape. They can feature a single row of petals or a dome shape and come in white, yellow, red, orange, and purple.
