About the zinnia:
zinnias are annual plants that are native to Mexico and North America. They are part of the daisy family with upright stems – but some zinnias have a lax habit with spreading stems that mound over the ground surface:
- Zinnias thrive in both summer cool and hot climates in full, sunny areas. They come in all types of colors that include chartreuse, yellow, orange, red, purple, or lilac.
- Zinnia flowers will die at the first freeze; however, you can harvest the seeds from a mature plant and re-seed them in the following spring.
