Great Cutting Flowers: Annual Zinnias

These annual zinnias are some of my children's favorite flowers in the garden. As you can see, they come in a wide array of bright, happy colors and are great for cutting. They produce flowers for months. At this time of year, they are great for mixed bouquets with dahlias and sunflowers. In my garden, I grow them primarily in the Cutting Garden to keep them away from the groundhog.

Those are lovely. I didn't grow zinnias the year and I'm sorry. They are very rewarding for the amount of work they require (none;).

Ya know, the zinnia foliage is all wilted here, but the flowers themselves still look perky. I think I will cut them and bring them in today. You have a nice variety here!

What lovely zinnias you have. I have reserved space for them in my garden because they are such bee and butterfly magnets. But that hot color all mixed up just makes me joyous just to look at it.
