Just to show how tough these plants are. The seeds survived prolonged freezing temperatures last winter. In the decomposed granite, at the foot of the vegetable garden steps, orange white and yellow zinnias germinated in the spring, survived with no water during the long mid summer dry spell, but bounced back with vigor after the rain we had two weeks ago.
They are now basking in the 'wows' I give them every time I walk by.
They are putting on a similar show in the herb garden.
and the vegetable garden. Wouldn't you make a place for these little gems in your own garden? It's easy. Just buy some seeds and you'll have them every year. They flower from spring to frost. The original packet was from the 'star' series, which I have never seen again, but then even though I collect seeds every year, just in case, I hardly ever have to use them.
