This is my contribution for the Flower Fest A-Z for the letter Z.
This is a picture of Zinnia that I grow in my Patio. These are very very bright colored flowers and looks very catchy and beautiful.
innias are true American natives that originated from the Southwest US, Mexico and Central America. The original was a purplish wildflower that grew in the Mexican deserts. Hybridizers have turned it into one of the most popular bedding plants.
Zinnias grow to between 6 and 40 inches in height with single and double blossoms varying in diameter from less than an inch to 7 inches. The petals can be any of a wide range of colors or multicolored.
