Zesty Zinnias

“Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.”

Luther Burbank

Native to the American Southwest, Central America and South America, zinnias are a generational favorite. Colorful additions to American gardens, these easy to grow sun lovers attract lots, and lots, and lots of butterflies. Similar to their sunflower cousins, zinnias produce large seeds, making direct sow planting easy for little fingers. For those wanting immediate results, garden centers offer zinnia seedlings, including border perfect dwarf varieties . So, visit a local garden center with a little buddy, choose some zinnia seeds or seedlings and get busy-Spring is here! More information about zinnias can be found at the following sites.
