Ah, zinnias, the perfect summer flower. I like to pick them and fill all my little vases, so I grow them every year and this year they are looking particularly good. I plant a small patch around my mailbox, all zinnias, and they get a lot of compliments from the walkers (and dog walkers). I plant the smaller 'Profusion' zinnias around the edges and then the taller varieties in the middle. I always buy seed packets of 'Cut and Come Again' and 'Envy' (lime green), and I usually choose a few other varieties too. I like to mix up the seeds and plant them in open areas in my perennial garden too, so I always have plenty of zinnias for picking.
