Zinnia elegans

Annual. Zinnias are a must for anyone wanting glorious, long-lasting colors throughout the garden as well as for cut flower arrangements. Large blooms on heat-loving tall plants are perfect for the back of the flowerbed; also stunning planted in mass. Each individual flower lasts a very long time on the plant, and in the vase before fading.
